I Stand A Lone - Poem by Ray Cheung

As on a star
In an alien zone
Stranded and strayed
Relentlessly seeking
from afar

I stand alone
As on a star
If only I have known
Better or worse
That nothing gold remains
but scar

I stand alone
As on a star
Heart sinks heavy as stone
Solid but cracked
Plunged down and tightly sealed
in a jar

I stand alone
As on a star
Gravity-less I roam
Spacious and free
Where true light shines right through
who we are

I stand alone
As on a star
Will I ever find One
Sincere and true
Absolutely nothing
can mar?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was inspired by the words written by Sisi, Empress Elisabeth of Austria when I visited Vienna. Her words was so beautiful but sad at the same time. I wrote this during the 5 hours bus ride to Prague. One of my personal favorite :)
