to be alone
To Be Alone
Solitude brings peace but being alone brings restiveness,
a longing for a voice even if it is a speak saying obvious
utterances. Silence doesn’t make a man whole he needs
to hear voices, to make sure we are not alone in a world
full of noises, that means nothing for the basic needs of
the daily. Simple things what’s for dinner tomorrow and
if we do not listen carefully we lose love behind the words
of domestic murmour as it often get lost in the world of
thunder; if we lose the ability to listen out for the ordinary
we lose the big picture, our loneliness becomes agonizing
a constant hum that only brings despair and unhappiness.
