I am alone,
but never lonely,
I’m my own best company,
I find solace in my solitudes,
I meet my soul at those altitudes,
Being alone, is what I seek,
thinking in solitude takes me to my peak,
being alone is not the issue,
when your soul’s happy,
and your eyes don’t need a tissue,
in being alone I find myself,
in being alone I discover my soul,
and my inner self.

By Debra Pry 

I hear the wind whisper your name..

but I turn around to look,

and I’m all alone.
No need to fear says the Moon,

I’ll be here every night to comfort you.

And when I leave the Sun will shine on you everyday..

You will never be alone again.


By Bennys Journey 


She searches
Her own heart
From her very chest…
The depths of despair
Upon her soul
That she cannot flee from…
Fill her lungs
As she gasps
For her life…
Her mind
Drives homes
The inevitable…
She is
And will always

Alone is my selfishness cry from within,

an escape into solitude dancing with a grin.

Softly it embraces me cutting deeply through my skin,

unraveling my thoughts like thread on a gin.

Drifting in silence I listen for the chains,

they sting so sweet as they cut thru my veins.

The warmth of my dreams trickle through my toes,

a puddle of solitude my life slowly goes.


By E Sabreen Ahad 

There is no such feeling as “Alone”….
I have the massive sky…
to let me know I have a roof
over my head…
I have the rustling leaves that whisper to me,
when I need a heartfelt conversation….
I have the breeze…to embrace me gently…
when I need to be hugged.
I have songbirds who seem to delight
in serenading me…when I need music
to soothe my soul…
And I have God….The One who brings all
of these gifts to me….
to remind me
that I am never…….


By Rinn Zerrudo 

I let go of that lantern,
watching it get lost in a thousand others,
twinkling like swarms of fireflies in the night.

I admire the view,
just for a moment,

Then I started to turn my head to the side——
and blinked in surprise at myself.

I almost expected
I had someone beside me
whose eyes would reflect the wonder in mine.


Right before I realized with a jerk:

I am alone.
I am alone.

By Payal Kantharia 

You came alone in this world..and shall go alone!

A -All L-Lonely O- N- E .

No matter what, you have to shine like the sun does rising alone.

Being alone has its own powers, see d sun , the moon.. The earth!!

If they can.. U can too !

By Lydia Smith-Hamer 

Whether by choice or circumstances being alone can be both good and bad.
Feelings will differ, emotions will change.
Sometimes the loneliest of people are the ones with all the friends.
An individuals interpretation of being “alone “ is often affected by their life experiences. It is only through true understanding of where you have been and where you would like to go that a person can find themselves. Loneliness can be a very dark place and to others a very peaceful place.

By Elijah Johnson 

“Alone with my thoughts
alone in the world
Into a corner of
my mind I curl
Under the covers
in a dark place
Why does negativity
rent so much space?
How to get out?
I’m not sure
I wish someone would
give me the cure
But the trouble
you see
Is that it’s all
up to me.”

By Saffiya Ibrahim 

Here i sit
Alone again
Resounding questions
What if
What now
What then

Stifling darkness
An endless fall
No one hears
When i call

Broken heart
Lost dreams
Silent tears
Soundless screams

Will none take notice of this
shattered being?
Will they forever pass by

By Rinku Shah 

That feeling of being Alone!
Can never be shown,
You feel the pain in every bone,
Shout, scream or moan.

Shaken out of your comfort zone!
Wish I had known,
This is not what I had sown,
Suddenly off guard I was thrown.

Darkness engulfed me while the sun shone!
To hurt I was prone,
Like a dried leaf I was blown,
Turned to stone.

I know I’ve finally grown…
Time to set the tone,
Ascend to my throne,
Coz I know what it’s to be Alone!

By Gabrielle Cheek 

Alone I sit
Alone I stay.
I wage a battle
every day.
I fight alone.
Alone I cry.
And all alone
I say goodbye.
The life I lead,
The love I choose.
Alone I conquer.
Alone I lose.
Alone I rise.
Alone I fall.
And all alone
I hear the call.
I face the truth.
I face the pain.
And all alone
The prize I gain.
The beauty,
Beaten, battered,
And all alone,
The love we own,
Only us
And us alone.

By Shruti Ramesh 

Alone is not aloof,
Alone is not a spoof.
Alone is liberation,
Alone is creation.
Alone is not addictive,
Alone is not seductive.
Alone is finding you,
Alone is proud and true.

By Nicole Roe 

Cheers loneliness.
Here’s to you,
keeping me company
whatever I do.

By Eva Schuitemaker 

You feel truly alone when there is nowhere to come home

By Swati Chauhan
