I Alone

Nobody but nobody can make it alone
Maybe that’s true, alone one can’t make a home
But what happens when you get contaminated?
And everyone leaves you unattended?

I and I alone will make it through
I too, I like company like you do
Except company unlike you likes me not
But I’ve go’ to make it no matter how ‘cause life’s too short

If only I had a shoulder to lean on
A voice to lead me on
Or a single ear to listen to my disgraceful moan
But here I am singing the saddest song

But life goes on
Even without a shoulder to lean on
Time ticks still
Even without a voice to lead me on
The joke still plays on
Even as I sing this sad song
And I, I alone will make it alone.

    We are never alone on this big planet. If you want to have a friend show
    yourself as being friendly. No man is an island unto himself. Let your
    love shine on someone else no matter how small it may seem. Good write. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
