I was not invited

You tell me that I should give praise and lift my arms.

You tell me that I should smile and dance.

You tell me that things will get better

But how can I do all these things?

You can say that because you are seated around a table

With dishes of happiness and wealth and wisdom

And other things good.

I am standing outside watching you from the window

And I can understand why you tell me such things.

How I would love to sit at that table

And also do the things that you say that I should do

But I was not invited.
