the outsider by Bogdan Dragos

el
my neighbor from upstairs
claims that
God sticks
post-it notes on his
fridge overnight

I did ask him
what they said but
he only told me that I'll
have to follow
him to church if
I want to find out

I'm generally not a very
curious guy
so I declined
and, what do you know, few
days later I see
lots of other
people following my
neighbor to church

They all looked the
other way when
I passed by them and said hi

Thing is
I don't even doubt
God spoke to my neighbor
through post-it notes
and gave a lot of people hope

I just
like being the outsider
more than I like
being hopeful

    Hope, though positive and helpful, has its own prison and rules and regulations. Sometimes being free is a better option. Cheers to the outsider. A brave decision. 🙂

    I wonder what was on those notes? But church?!
    Have been reading several poems and am very glad they’re there.
