Oustanding Who We

There was
No New Year
as standing out
as we all were
in imagery only

we thought the year was passing slowly
we all were standing out not so closely

six feet was the minimum
not more than four in a room
so I composed my poem

From 2020 to 2021''

not many were as outstanding
to understand me
my outstanding poetry

all were self indulging
left me with no glee
they knew not me
who was I
in the darkness
out standing

ways you use "outstanding". I took this to mean a reflection on how rough it's been in 2020. perhaps a desire for a better 2021, too?

might I suggest that you use "standing out" somewhere in the body to give more play on it

did you mean the ALLCAPS where you used it?
