My Happy


Light shine darkness smile
happy partnership lonely
joy oneself mind’s eye

I am happy but I'm also extremely lonely
only difference is, I don’t allow my loneliness
take over me nor do I excuse its shadow
I embrace its presence, in turn strengthen
the love in one self, this side hopefully will pass
if not make do to benefit in a positive manner
I am happy but I'm also extremely lonely
the only difference is, I allow the Happiness
to step out of shadows realm to shine this darken light

embrace shadows hand
manifest liberated
self-ease beauty soul

    this world is the realm of struggling between happiness and sadness.some times we may get the happiness out of solitude. the more we are lonely the more we feel sad! !
    totally i agree with Thomas.we come to this world alone and leave it alone.

    We enter this world alone
    we leave this world alone
    It is an intergal part of our soul
    define loneliness as nothing and you realize
    you have all you need to build a rewarding life
    and in the end you realize that nothing has become.everything
    and you are content to move on alone with nothing (Report) Reply

    It is possible to turn loneliness into a positive state by being content with your own company. Nice write Kelvin. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
