All Alone

Another new poem. I got inspired by something my mother said and just went with it, though I don’t necessarily agree with it completely. Comments and critique would be appreciated 🙂

All Alone

Tired and wet we all emerge
Dripping in blood and dripping in sweat
They clean us up
They rub us down
We do as they say
Or upon us they frown
We bend, and twist and we conform
We follow all of society’s norms
Until we’re broken, beaten and torn.
Our hearts were once soft and tender and warm
They grow cold as ice as we live our lives
Sooner or later they turn to stone
And yet we pretend we are not alone.
We act as though we love each other
The reality is we love ourselves
Not out mother, father or brother
We’re selfish people through and through
Who live in our full but empty homes
But we’ll die dark and slowly
All alone…

    A lonely heart will forever strive
    To find it’s match, wherever it may hide.
    Our lives may be lived in ignorance
    Of another’s loving radiance.

    Walking alone might be faster, it’s true.
    But walking with a friend has it’s benefits too.
    A warm hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on…
    A heart with to share your joy and fun.

    Cake isn’t sweet, cola loses it’s fizz.
    Without someone dear to share it with.
    So be strong! Don’t lose hope!
    You’ll meet someone to make the pain stop.

    Life’s pleasures are too huge
    To not share with a close few.
    Until my final breath,
    I’ll still share my happiness with you.
