A Brokenness Inside


Life is so lonely for everyone on earth.
We try to fill our time here with people, things and lists to do, but loneliness is always inherently within us, taunting us with it's disregard of love and happiness.
Old or young, when people we have placed in our lives - through marriage or friendship - die or leave us for someone else, we are left with a gaping hole - a total emptiness for the rest of our days.
It's far beyond just sadness - it's a brokenness held deeply in our souls.

    Life is so lonely for every one on earth....but loneliness isn't something to be shunned or afraid of; it's rather a possible catalylist for a more purposeful and engaging life and an avenue for heightened self-awareness and maturity, thing that i see in your poem: We try to fill our time, and you fill your time writing poems full of maturity, goodness, reality, current problems, succeeeding thus to play the modern tune over the keyboard of tradition.
    Lastly, solitude is delicious in the years of maturity, giving you a lot of possibilities, isn't it? , A great write! (Report) Reply

    What I believe gets broken is the ability to leap fearlessly as we once did when we were young. In that turning finding different ways to love...as Ghandi put it.....Be the change you want to see in the world. No reason one loss can't inspire another's gain. (Report) Reply
