Alone with no one around, alone in a crowd,
Alone when quiet, alone when it’s loud.
Alone means darkness is not far away,
Alone means the soul never sees the light of day.
Alone happens at work and alone happens at play,
Alone you ask when people are never far away?
Alone is not about people but rather emotion,
Alone some claim is in your head, it’s just a notion.
Alone comes to those with both fortune and fame,
Alone comes to the strong, the sturdy, and lame.
Alone can at times be a friend, but it’s mostly a foe,
Alone is painful, but the lonely can put on a show.
Alone is a sentence that lasts but a life,
Alone on the earth cuts the heart like a knife.
One day soon the loneliness of life will end,
One day soon the lonely won’t have to pretend.
The lonely this life hope not to extend
Simply let the soul depart they ask be it to ascend or descend.
