Not Important Enough: Revolutionary Haiku Lament

April 3, 2011

Elder L. Tom Perry, a Mormon Apostle, spoke at a General Priesthood meeting probably around April, 2011, about rescuing members who aren’t coming to Church any more, or who aren’t “active” in the Church. He talked about how every person is important, and that we need to fellowship them and love them. At the time, I was not in full fellowship in the Church. It was amazing (and painful) to me that I was basically ignored, especially since I’d been such a big part of the local congregation for so long. These poems came out of that presentation:
19:45 p.m.
If I’m so vital/
and important, why doesn’t/
someone come for me?

20:05
Just because I make/
it hard for you to love me,/
why stop trying to?
OR
why are you quitting?
OR
Why should you not try?

20:10
What happened to me?/
I worried about others./
Why am I ignored?

Yer abandonment concerns/
