I Stand Alone


I Stand Alone, all alone, by myself.
Self, being selfish, self-willed, self-evident,
self-sufficient, self-serving, self-assured,
self-disciplined, self-righteous, self-seeking,
self-less. Yet,

I Stand Alone, all alone, by myself.
Guilty, of sin, of blindness, of hatred, of fear,
guilty, of torment, of ignorance, of neglect,
guilty, of procrastinating, of judging, of criticizing,
guiltless. Yet,

I Stand Alone, all alone, by myself.
Fighting, against pain, against my feelings,
against depression, against the evils of this world,
against my family, against my foes, against friends
aggressively. Yet,

I Stand Alone, all alone, by myself.
Making, mistakes, making life worthwhile,
making every moment count, making some cry,
making a difference, making and leaving my mark
eternally. Yet,

I Stand Alone, all alone, by myself.
Yet, back then I could not see.
Am I Alone? No not Alone,
God's Angels Stand By Me.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
