I Alone - Poem by Thomas Duncky

Nobody but nobody can make it alone
Maybe that’s true, alone one can’t make a home
But what happens when you get contaminated?
And everyone leaves you unattended?

I and I alone will make it through
I too, I like company like you do
Except company unlike you likes me not
But I’ve go’ to make it no matter how ‘cause life’s too short

If only I had a shoulder to lean on
A voice to lead me on
Or a single ear to listen to my disgraceful moan
But here I am singing the saddest song

But life goes on
Even without a shoulder to lean on
Time ticks still
Even without a voice to lead me on
The joke still plays on
Even as I sing this sad song
And I, I alone will make it alone.

    We are never alone on this big planet. If you want to have a friend show
    yourself as being friendly. No man is an island unto himself. Let your
    love shine on someone else no matter how small it may seem. Good write.
