You smile and the world smiles with you
Most times, there is nobody to wipe your tears
No one to talk to when you feel blue
In solitude you battle your fears.
Loneliness manifests itself in depression
Withdrawaing into a shell, into isolation
A sense of abondonment, of rejection
Sword of damocles hanging over head like damnation.
One cannot cheat loneliness with drugs, alcohol
Solitariness helps discover one's quintessence
Sorrow, pain gives feeling of acquiescence
Intoxicating the senses is like fighting a raging squall.
Poverty has a forlorn face
Shunned by society,looked down upon
Wretchedness is a disgrace
Feeling of being unwanted, a lonesome liaison.
