Surviving Loneliness 

I have survived loneliness

Being bored to death when I would be on my own

Found hobbies and worked at them

Enjoyed the fascinating work I was shown

Now I am not bothered by solitude

Love the moments when I can be alone

Loneliness is a Foe

Cut Off
by Michelle W.
When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?


Loneliness is a foe to be kept at bay

It can lead one to acute despair

You have to keep it banishing everyday

With books to read, and works you prefer

Sometimes succeeding, other times not

You can’t give in to what you fear

What I do is to keep myself busy

With good thoughts, and my daily prayers

Then there is my God, who watches over me

He buoys me up, and keeps me in good cheer
