    A very soul stirring write. Man was not made to live alone.
    It is sometimes obtained by the choices that we make.
    Still we must persevere and go on. (Report) Reply

    idd I agree! ! Everybody needs a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on from time to time! ! Someone to encourage or rebuild you in difficult times... So idd `Nobody, but nobody Can make it out here alone` (Report) Reply

    Lovely poem. i composed full poem on this fidn some excerpts.....10

    You need to ask one question
    And clearly mention
    With one voice
    That you should stand with words to promise

    Compare with no other
    That shall only make you to bother
    Add to worries
    And carry no further

    Best way is to forget
    About whole world and let
    Your views prevail
    And take you further without fail (Report) Reply

    I hate to correct you
    But I feel like I should
    Living out here alone
    You say no one could

    But I can, I will,
    I'll keep living on still.
    I'm used to it, it's fine
    I'll never resign.

    Being alone is what I accept.
    That doesn't mean that I am inept.
    Trust me, don't worry, the damage is done.
    It's a never-ending battle that I've already won

    Being alone doesn't make me sore
    I can definitely take it. Throw at me more.
    Being alone has no lose or gain.
    It'd ok. I'm used to the pain.

    Yes, I'm alone, all alone
    But you won't hear me cry or moan.
    But I can and I will make it out here alone. (Report) Reply

    Where water is not thirsty
    And bread loaf is not stone I think I can find such a place only in poetry
    I felt like loneliness was a disease only i suffer but today i know well that many do. It is not contagious like the smile we always wear to conceal the single sadness within of being alone. (Report) Reply
