Solitary Life part II

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 helped me. 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 this time. 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...
08/01/2013 Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo 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...

    "Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit." Aristotle. I like the moral of your story. Nice poem

    You give us a very strong message Lucilla and I agree with you, what good is money if we don't share it with those we love and those less fortunate than us, Keep sharing such lovely stories Lucilla, love to you xxx

    - An interesting story Lucilla, and your comments below, I could not agree more - Money does not make people happy!! (unfortunately we need them) - You're very good at small stories - stories that make the reader have to think. - Thank you my friend. - Wishing you a beautiful weekend, Lucilla! - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    Isolation - a many barbed pitchfork. On the one hand it solves the problems of hurting others and dealing with our guilt from personal insensitivity. On another tine of the fork is the problem of madness, such as is often experienced by prisoners in isolation. There are other barbs as well, too many to discuss here. I'll send you a soup mail. Fine poem; fine writing... Jack

    Lucilla. your footnotes are not needed. This was a very powerful story and the lesson was very clear. I really liked this, sweetie. Great story. (i would label it as "narrative" and a really good one!)
