HOW ALONE AM I


The question is how alone am I?
In this world full of smiles
This melody of happy rhymes
The gateway of long gay miles
Runway of such colorful styles

The question is how alone am I?
The sunshine, till there is good
The world beside me stood
Tears of joy, sets my hood
Foreseeing that, what I could

The question is how alone am I?
Some times I wonder deep in my soul
What if my luck goes for a stroll
What if no longer am I so sure
Instead of flying I start to crawl
Many I know will glide away
Could they be blamed for not to stay
When chattering voices having nothing to say
When stars no longer guide my way

The question is how alone am I?
Those who stay by my side
And in me they still take pride
For me whose hands are open wide
They will then become my guide

The question is how alone am I?
Never alone shall I ever be
My God keeps an eye on me
And till I have my family
Never alone shall I ever be

    Good self assessing one in a self questioning mode.
    Yes, no one on this earth is left alone, we're under Almighty's mighty care.

    keep it up. More I will read of yours.

    The question is not a new one; loneliness is the destiny of humankind since eternity. But you have given the answer in the last stanza of your poem. Your self-determination and self-discovery is admirable. Keep it up.
    Best Wishes

    The question is how alone am I?
    Never alone shall I ever be
    My God keeps an eye on me
    And till I have my family
    Never alone shall I ever be

    what a sweet and prefessionally written within poetic frame... flow is melodic and the idea is quite impresive and like when you are ending your question of lonliness with having your God and family with you.. really a good poem..well done (Report) Reply

I

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
