The Trash


The trash 

I am a thing of great value
But I ended up in the trash anyway
You have such an eye for quality things
Impeccable taste in all things aesthetic
And a deeper love for the logical and level
But I ended up in the trash anyway

I am a thing of great respect
But I ended up in the trash anyway
The dints and bruises add to the character
Nothing new can compare to my depth
My beauty is immeasurable
But I ended up in the trash anyway

I am a thing that is one of a kind
But I ended up in the trash anyway
No one has ever forgotten me
I etch my inner-being on all that I meet
My difference is my most memorable trait
But I ended up in the trash anyway

I am a thing of distinct taste
But I ended up in the trash anyway
It takes a special man to appreciate me
I don’t fit into molds easily
Just when I’m here, then I’m there
But I ended up in the trash anyway

I am a thing that is rare
But I ended up in the trash anyway
I diamond in the rough
Most cannot see or appreciate it
Humanity is pretty dense I suppose
Because I still ended up in the trash anyway

I hear the truck coming
And I’m still in here
Lost among the trash
To be discarded
And ignored
It stinks!
