A poem about loneliness.
Loneliness is a deep and heavy ache,
A feeling that can never quite be shaken,
It fills the soul, the heart, the mind,
And leaves the body feeling forsaken.

It's a feeling that can strike at any time,
In the midst of a crowd or in silence alone,
It's a feeling that can't be outrun or escaped,
And it can leave you feeling like you're on your own.

It's a feeling that can consume your days,
And fill your nights with endless tears,
It's a feeling that can leave you lost,
And make you question all your hopes and fears.

Loneliness can be a cruel and bitter friend,
A constant companion that never fades,
It can make you feel like you're drowning,
In an endless sea of never-ending shades.

It can make you feel like you're invisible,
Like no one sees you or cares,
It can make you feel like you're worthless,
Like you have nothing to offer or share.

But there is a beauty in loneliness too,
A quiet strength that can be found,
A resilience that can't be broken,
A hope that can still abound.

For in the depths of loneliness,
We can find our truest selves,
We can learn to love ourselves completely,
And put our doubts and fears on the shelves.

We can learn to find joy in the smallest things,
And appreciate the moments we're given,
We can learn to be grateful for all we have,
And let go of the things we've been driven.

Loneliness may be a heavy burden to bear,
But it can also be a gift,
For in its depths we can find ourselves,
And learn to live and love and lift.

So if you find yourself alone today,
Embrace the feeling, don't hide away,
For in the midst of loneliness,
We can find strength for a brighter day.
