All Alone - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Everyone surrounds
When there's wealth around
Like flies gather
On a stick of candy
And in adversity
There's none
Just at a time
When support's needed
It's not there
Things need to be tackled
All alone.

A green leaf gets
Nourishment from the sun
When it's on the tree
A fallen leaf
Dries up brown
Under the sun
Support gone
Man's like
A fallen leaf
Drifting with wind.

All alone
Decisions must be made.

All alone
Strength must be gained.

All alone
One must fight and win.

Nothing's straightforward
Fall's easy
Rise's tough
Hard work
Iron will
And faith
One must gather
And take a step forward.

    Falling from the tree of life is easy, it's the difficulties that come upon you that
    set you apart from others. We must catch the strength of the wind to survive
    this life alone. Love the imagery in your poem and the indisputable truth of your
    words. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    This is true. Nothing comes easy and I also find that the truth comes to me when I'm in solitude - in meditation. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    This is a very inspiring write. Nobody wants you when you are down
    and out. That is when we find out who our real friends are. When you
    are up everybody is up, when you are down nobody knows you are there.
    My poems A faithful Friend and Valley of Despair please read. (Report) Reply
