You are Alone

You said you gave me life I say you came into mine  
He said, she said – you always thought you were right 
Blinded by your own self absorbed mind, you lost it
All you thought you had - so much for your one sided life 

you are alone, you are now alone 
you would never admit it - you are always right 
so you say in your own mind 

No longer to stay as a sidelined existence 
She – just the other, made a life of her own  
Not blinded by the one who always thinks their right 
Standing strong & independent - no longer the ‘other’ 
but the lead role on a path, in charge of her life 

you however are now alone   
would never admit it you are always right 
so you say in your own mind

    You are never alone, even when you feel that way. I applaud you strength in separating yourself from a destructive force in your life. For me that person was my Dad and he did a lot of Damage and in the end was left alone with all his knowledge of what he had done to us. I can relate to your poem, well done.

    Great words here! I've learned to appreciate solitude as I have grown older. Being alone is hard at times but necessary to building ones character and soul. Way to be strong. Good poem! Thanks you

    I guess I relate to one who is now alone. Although, we're not all the same as far as different situations and personalities go. Just the aspect of being foolish enough to be the fool. May God fiil the rest of yours and their's life with joy and peace and love and forgivness. :)
