In A World Alone

All alone I came into this world,
All alone I sink into the waves at sea,
The tides wash away each sin that has been hurled,
doing away with what's buried deep within me.
All alone, the sand buries all my pain,
diminishing all depression, heart breaks, abuse,
and love given or taken in vain!
Alone-many years I've searched for you,
wondering, did anyone ever really care!
Alone-never knowing what it meant to be one of two!
Alone in this world, I roamed as a mummy,
humans laughing and mocking my emotions.
People often called me-Your little dummy!
In a world all alone, I am no more!
Alone I walk in the light;
that, leads straight to Heavens door!
In a world alone-I Am No More!

    The title of the poem drew me to it. When I finished reading it, I thought I knew your feelings of loneliness.
    Everybody comes to this world all alone, and goes from here to eternity all alone too. In between, one comes across and communicates with many people, still feeling lonely and all by oneself.
    'and love given or taken in vain! ' - I think love given or taken never goes waste. It leaves an impression, it leaves its mark. Love touches hearts.
    True, one is subjected to taunting and mockery when one leaves a mainstream crowd and decides to walk alone. Motivation and determination keeps one going at this stage.
    ' Alone I walk in the light;
    that, leads straight to Heavens door!
    In a world alone-I Am No More! ' - Did you mean here you saw the light of God? (Report) Reply

I want you to know

You know how this is:

of the slow autumn at my window,
