Alone In The Crowd - Poem by Walter Dapliyan

Wine glasses clinking, toasts abound,
People dancing, laughter all around.
Music blaring, the big room loud,
Yet here I am, alone in the crowd.
Game on, teams play neck and neck,
Fans enraptured, nerves a total wreck.
The win shot made, the victors proud,
Yet here I sat, alone in the crowd.
Streets are abuzz, festivities in the air,
Bands are marching, onlookers cheer.
Fireworks lit the sky with nary a cloud,
Yet here I stand, alone in the crowd.
Why am I like this? I asked to myself.
Friends say 'You must help yourself! '
But none is needed, for crying out loud..
I delight inside, being alone in the crowd.
