Are You All Alone Tonight?

Are you all alone tonight
So alone that you could weep
Do you hug your pillows tight
Will you cry yourself to sleep

Is there life inside your dreams
Do you wake into despair
Head filled with the sound of screams
Trapped inside your own nightmare

Does the morning seem to creep
Will the sunrise cause a fright
Are the riches yours to reap
Is the future yours to write

When awake are you aware
Are things what they really seem
Are smiles something you can bare
Have you got the self esteem

Does the pride in you run deep
Made to feel part of the team
Is it some thing you can keep
Ever followed through your scheme

Does the fire in you ignite
When you catch their icy stare
Do you humble at their spite
Do you even really care

Do you take it to extremes
Is the price you pay too steep
Are these just your daily themes
Does life really seem so cheap

Morning brings more wear and tear
Another battle left to fight
Will you face it, do you dare
Will you be alone tonight

    Your poem is provoking and the literature and use of dictionary is incredibly grand. The first poem I've given full marks too! 10+ matthew!
