Alone

Alone – we journey through our lives –
our companions play bit-parts;
for the stage is often empty
like our lonely searching hearts.

Alone – we clothe ourselves in manners –
those we wish the world to see;
then as confidence increases
inner spirits are set free.

Alone – we seek out an admirer –
whirling egos in a dance;
but the joy of peaceful living
often equally enchants.

Alone we journey through our lives –
needing others just to share
those moments when Earth’s beauty
seems so infinitely rare.
