alone

Alone

By JFarrell

 

I don’t know what the number is,

There are six billion people on this planet

( or is that just this country? )

That’s a lot of people

 

And, yet

So many of us

Feel

So alone

 

And

I am one of them

Why?

 

 

I have neighbours

Left, right, underneath me

I have faces I see, everyday

Exchange words with

I see faces I might like to talk to

 

But

They don’t talk to me first

And

I won’t risk

Talking to them first

 

So many of us are alone

And

It doesn’t have to be this way.
