Embarrassed Silence

There’s a generation of lost folk,
Who don’t know they’re lost.
Surrounded by open maps:
Where they are and where to go.
Few stray,
Most follow well trodden paths.
For not to
Is to proclaim
One’s invisibility
And social divorce.
This open secret
Can not be pointed out.
Mere efforts to do so
Are met with a muttering
Of ‘odd’
Or nothing at all.

Just embarrassed silence.
