Introspection

A Lonely Man

 

Spring 1965

Family Event  ~  Spring 1965

 

To love and yet, not be loved in return,

To want and yet, yourself not wanted,

To care and yet, find yourself not cared for.

 

Through the sparkle of a tear our selfish world can be seen,

Whether the onlooker be delighted or remorseful within

 

Out in this world of ours stands a man who cares,

He cares for others and not himself,

He’d die for a cause if he thinks it just,

But to fight for his own existence,

He thinks it vain.

 

This man sees our world through sad and lonely eyes;

He loves our world and our world loves him not,

He cares for our world and our world wants him not,

This man feels alone, he stands alone.

 

Within there is a smile,

Without the sea of tears.

He cries for help.

  1. IT’S ALL GOOD IT’S THE PATH IN LIFE, THAT YOU CHOSE. NO REGRETS.

      Indeed, no regrets; although, I doubt I’d knowingly choose all I’ve experienced. I believe this may be a ‘chosen’ path, but by whom is the $64M question! :-p
