Alone, but Not Giving Up (a poem)

There is a sadness

beneath all the intent,

the straight stares


as you enter the room.

You feel

the desolation

of hearts unwilling,

yet you never understand

their purpose.

Yet they

live and breathe

to prove your breaths

– unwanted.

Your feelings,

but discarded trash

along the wayside,

and it matters not –

to them,

or anyone –

that you still care,

that you ache

to matter

and perhaps,

that is the problem.

But I cannot

allow them

to stop me

from being

who I am

and I cannot

give up

the kindness

that I have learned

along the way,

for perhaps

out there –

there is someone

like me,

hoping to find


among the cruelty.

    1. My heart truly feels at home with my family. I am blessed that they truly make me feel like I have a place. I’ve had people in life – along the way who made a great difference in my life, so I am truly blessed. Sadly, I’ve had more of a difficult time in older age finding someone with the same soul.

    1. Thank you. I took off some time to help the kids with homeschooling. They are starting to get older and needing me less so I have a bit of “me time” on my hands 🙂 Grateful to be back and it’s so good to see you!
