Loneliness

By Jon Dunnemann




Loneliness seats us in darkness and engulfs us in silence.

In the absence of warmth we become cold and frigid.

The heart seems to lose its natural rhythm.

Stricken with pause we slowly begin to wilt like a dying limerick.

Left in this condition for too long we are prone to being overtaken both by fear and despair.

Very likely, the spirit of hope will rise up and walk out on us.

Good reasoning though struggles to inform us that being alone is so very unbecoming.

It is far better for us to grab a firm hold of our sense of oneness with all that is.

Once there in the company of many other isms we are much more apt to find unexpected comfort, love and unity will have arisen.
