    It was a very clever texst, whit rhymes and so.
    It was very interesting to listen to.
    When I listent to it I felt a little bit sad, because jour allone and sad.
    bud then I want from sad to happy because in the last sentences it is comforting.
    It makes you think on al the pepol who are allone.
    I think that it is a graet texst, to let you think.

    The sounds where a little bit like a robot.
    Overall the text is good. a little bit lonely but i think that was on purpose.
    It wasn't that usefull for me.
    Because i think i am quite good at english.
    Ok back to the text.
    It was a little bit short in total their are 8 sentences.
    I don't think people cried after hearing this.
    And also the stops in between the sentences where not equel.

    this reminds me of a saying i learned from a student my first year of teaching-

    to the world you may just be one person,
    but to one person you may be the world.

    Ironic, isn't it, the universality of loneliness. At once encouraging, yet quietly discouraging. To be cut off, disconnected, isolated in a sea of humanity experiencing the exact same quality. Is it confined to humanity, this ability to be immediately beside someone, yet feel a million miles away?
    A gentle echo of poetic poignancy, well-crafted.
