Being Alone


I am alone
I have no brother nor sister
Yet, I'm happy...

I am alone
I have many friends
Yet, I'm lonely...

I am alone
I am always going alone
I am always going alone in the dark...

I am alone
I want to see the beauty of the world
I want to hear the sound of the sword
But I can't...because I'm alone

I am alone
I like to be with you
I want to join the group
I want to help them
I like to teach them

Why am I always alone?
Why am I isolated?
Why am I secluded?

Please answer me
Please help me
Please take care of me
I am alone....being alone...

I want to be happy
I don't want to be lonely
I want to know you
Even if I am alone...

    Beautiful poem
    The reader can feel the dilemma.
    Being alone, seeing the beauty of the world, being happy.
    So true sometimes these things go together,
    sometimes being alone seems to be an obstacle.
    Excellent poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
