Solitary Life story/poem
He was able to get up and was able to walk. Now he
was thinking to himself - maybe I did the wrong thing.
I shouldn't have isolated myself from people. I could
have hurt myself really bad and no one would have
He said to himself - I am going to change. I will take off
the fence, uncover the windows and change my ways.
I will start talking to people again and make some friends.
After doing what he said he would - he then went out for
a walk. He first saw the dog that always barked ar him.
He tried to touch him, but the dog didn't barked at him
He saw the neighbor that always said hello to him. He
greeted her and she didn't answer him. He also saw other
people, he tried to be friendly, but no one talked to him.
As he was going back to his house - he saw a lot of people
going inside his home. He asked them what was going on,
but they too did not answer. They were paramedics and
other people that had gathered around.
Soon he saw them bring a body out of the house. He went
over to see who the dead person was. To his surprise - he
saw himself as the dead man. The fall had killed him...

Comments: The message here is to not isolate
yourselves, from people. try to make friends, don't
be by yourselves. We all need friends. Friends are like
treasures. Sometimes it's better to have friends, than to
have a lot of money and live a lonely life...
