Alone But Not Lonely Poem by Lyn Paul

Alone But Not Lonely

Rating: 4.8

Alone but not lonely
Broke yet not poor
Down, yet not out
Smiling, but not laughing

Blessed yet not enriched
Hurting though not pained
Hearing but not heard
Risen yet not rising
Old but not elderly

Living..... Though, Not alive
Sweet and never sweetened
Angered though not angry
Fearing..... but not afraid

Awake and often woken
Beautiful, Inside and out
Anxious to lose these anxieties
To find again real life

Too honest
Hungry for success

Alone but not lonely

Yes! ! ! The inward battle. Feeling...but not giving in to negativity. Accepting pain and loss...not allowing it to become your master, but rather mastering the emotion.
