Lonely - Poem by Asma Khan

I am a lonely person
I have many people around me
But the feeling of loneliness
Its deeply seated in me

The birds are chirping
I can hear the voices
My kids are chatting around
But I feel lonely, I am a lonely

To subside the feeling
I mingle with my kids
Playing with them for a while
Making them laugh.

Then again I feel lonely
Its my inner feeling
I am a lonely person
like a lonely tree in the desert.
I am a lonely person!

    Loneliness is inherent in humanity, we are solo individuals always seeking companionship and love. When our hearts and souls are not fulfilled we become lonely, living in a void. Trying to join our children or others is only temporary, we need an interior life of spirituality to blossom and give us what we truly need within. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I can understand the feeling, but believe me this feeling is temporary. A time comes when this person who feels lonely becomes the ray of hope for others. And then that is a very good feeling. You'll never feel lonely after that.
