Alone But Not Lonely - Poem by Lyn Paul

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

Honest...Yes
Too honest
Now
Hungry for success


Alone but not lonely

    I like how the Poetess viewed life.
    Practical, humbling and honest.
    The way we should face life itself.
    Being alone does not tantamount to being lonely.
    There are numerous things that can make our life beautiful.
    We can enjoy the wonders of existence even in our solitary life.
