Zzzzz Alone - Poem by .Pd. is here

Will a friend fly here
Among the gulls that glide and cry,
And erase all the mortification
Just to end this life's taxation?

Will a friend float here
Among the waves that rise and fall,
And break upon the rocks
To shatter lies that stand tall?

Will a friend walk here
Among the numerous passerbys
And fight for my rights
On all the days and nights?

Will a friend swim here
Among the sharks that create terror and fear
With strength and courage
Just to save my jagged life?

Or will I sit and sob
Among the winds that swirl and twirl
Only to unfurl
A life with beauty all around
But no human support to surround.
Does that mean all I can do is moan and groan
And nevertheless be on my own - ALL ALONE?

- (Written when in Std Xii)

    If we are alone in an island surrounded by the sea, then we should feel like this. But we are in the city and to make friends there are many. But all cannot become friends. A friend in need is a friend indeed. A nice poem indeed.
