There are times when I've felt so alone
I could have just curled up and died.
Times when I knew such love and joy
I could have sat and cried.

Such true words and so well penned. I often think about man's inhumanity to man and lack of compassion because so often the rules our governments makes, supported so often by the public are the same rules they cannot, themselves abide by because they are too harsh in practice. In other words 'man' is his own worst enemy as he can make the world a better place but so often chooses not to. It's a very simple rule, an old saying: Do as you would be done by.

Important to remember the first line of the second stanza when we're depressed- good advice in a good poem.

Well thought out poem with a magnificent conclusion. Problem is there are many not like us who hate this world and want to destroy all who are in it. We must be vigilant and unafraid.
