He told me
 I couldnít learn
I wasnít capable
 of understanding
I was not worth saving
I couldnít be helped
he will deny it 
but that is what 
he said all right
I was too slow
and arrogant too
so I bowed my head
not me, I said
I sank into despair
for it isnít fair
hadnít I done  
what he said
and with sadness
I watched an
 expression of
 kindness to one
nearby and 
I thought
why does he 
think so little
of me
a human 
said so
I am left
to ever
wonder but 
could it
he was 
 to himself
