Kelsea Osterman


Alone


I walk a path that has no end.
It seems to go on and on.
Never comes to an end
and has no light.
It is dark and cold.
It is scary and I'm all alone.
I have to walk this path
wondering why I do it.
Why am I here and
where am I?
I walk this path with an
empty mind now.
Nothing to think about.
Nothing to do.
I wish to find the light.
Just a little light would be nice.
But here I am still wandering
these halls that have no end.
still no one here, and still all
alone.

    The poem is well formed and worded. If it is an expression of the authors’ feelings then it is perfect, but if it is an attempt to put into words the loneliness of others it might benefit from a lift or hint of something better to come? Or maybe I am just trying to be optimistic after coming out of a black period myself? ? ? ? (Report) Reply

    this is a good read and the title poem of the day is well-deserved...Sometimes one must enjoy one's own company and listen to one's inner voice, for that is the voice of God... (Report) Reply

    Kelsea Osterman, I have slightly different view, when walks a individual path one is normally alone, and one walks to journey, a journey to a destination, a destination which is light it self, therefore being in the dark is a reminder that the journey is yet not over. (Report) Reply

    There is a point in everyone's life where they see only darkness. And I for one can relate to that, for it is so true :) thanks for sharing the poetic thoughts of yours: -D

    Much of your writing reminds me of my journals as a teen, full of angst and passion...great way to unload. (Report) Reply

    You are in the early development of poetry.I would suggest you keep working at the poems you have posted, keep perfecting, it's a good therapy a great tool but poetry is to be spilled artistically, to coax the reader in, write as you wish to read.

    Keep it up.
