Loneliness - Poem by belinda mrwebi
Sometimes encounters with people give you a new perspective about life.
Your actions towards them and what you allow to enter your space of consciousness often teaches you a lot about yourself.
We live in a time of such great loneliness, with so much space to socialize and connect with people, yet we are so disconnected.
Everyone has a friend, a sister or a brother yet we miss each other, even though we are in each other’s presence.
Each of us hides our loneliness through keeping our selves occupied with faking relations, other than creating genuine interactions which will lead to real relationships.
Why are we so afraid of ourselves?
Our pain and even our happiness.
We look at our flaws with horror as if someone out there has modeled perfection for us and therefore it’s a disgrace to be anything less.
We are so obsessed with putting on the musk of perfection and easily accept anything fake because we can no longer identify with what is real.
We create fake friendships and partner with people who make us look good than feel good.
We seek happiness in things because we never have the time to value human souls.
To seek something real makes you the odd one but even in all the effort of chasing shadows, we are more miserable as a human race than we have ever been and the worst part is, we think we have it all together.
