Battling Loneliness

 Loneliness can happen to us all
 no matter our particular situation
 we can feel so alone
 even in a crowded occasion

 Many years ago in my early twenties
 being a loner has not a friend
 a single child with no siblings
 will this ever end?

 Many negative thoughts are born
 what's point of carrying on?
 having stuttering block as well
 sometimes wishing I was gone

 Slowly and surely I survived
 through friend's God sent to me
 but the most important of all
 God's truth set me free

 Telling of Jesus great love
 Christ having died in my place
 being alone on the cross
 Jesus dealt with all of my case

 Now living free in Christ
 He is my friend so complete
 nothing can take away His presence
 when I bow at His feet

    The poem paints the picture of loneliness really well and the religious aspect made it really personal. Brought a tear to my eyes.Best wishes Linda x
