A single one in a binary code (poem)

(Pronunciation: ones and ohs)

.

I’m a single one in a binary code;

Life is such, while I am flat

All others are curved.

.

How I envy the other Os

So uniform in their rows,

Stood together, all very neat

While I’m a blemish on the sheet

.

Wherever I’m put, I become a divide

Unless they push me to the side

Then it’s obvious I’m an odd one

While the sea of Os goes on and on

.

If only I could take their shape

And never look so out of place;

Or they could all change into ones

So any difference will have gone.

.

There surely must be reason for me

To suffer this indignity,

Because it’s dreadfully sad to be alone

Being a single one in a binary code.

.

  1. I added you to my favorite. Dear Abelia, I enjoyed your work. Writing is hard work. We must write for ourselves first and we hope. Other people will like our work. I will come back tomorrow and read more. I am off to my night shift.

    1. Thank you. I use this more as a place to store some of my writing. However, I want to know I am not being unfairly blocked or hacked, as it seems I am both in life, and my minimal views and comments over years here suggest. In a world of billions, when I receive only one or two views for posts, from the same ‘person’, I begin to question.

      1. I use a few sites. If you don’t read some people. They don’t read your work. I need to read. Keep my mind working. I appreciate the people who read my work. I believe, us writers, need to help each other. I was glad to have found you Abelia. Have some fun and be safe.
