An Orphan With Parents!!!

Amidst life's canvas, echoes resound, lauding my fortune for parental embrace,

Yet their gaze is a prism, distorting the hues of my solitude and concealed worries,

They bemoan their own fortune, lamenting the void left by their vanished forebears,

Thus, they christen those nestled under parental wings as the bearers of luck.

Alas, within this narrative blooms the obliviousness to the thorns sown by the same hands,

Oh, to be an orphan and shed the shackles of judgment's gaze!

Awakening is shadowed by a masquerade, a veneer that veils my seclusion,

While others bask in assumptions, I remain shrouded in the embrace of solitude,

In the symphony of misunderstanding, I orchestrate my solitary overture,

Nourishment and shelter, mere facades veiling the cavernous chasm within.

Parenthood's tapestry, woven with threads of distinction,

Yet, only a few boast the privilege of both paternal and maternal radiance,

I diverge from the throng, for I perceive a deeper spectrum of existence,

An altered hue that unveils disparities beneath life's veneer.

No kinship do I share with the semblance of 'them,'

For my sin, if it may be named thus, lies in my profound perception,

A prism through which I glimpse the myriad dimensions of reality,

Would that I were an orphan, free to acquaint myself with solitude's embrace!
