Alone

I really feel it to be true that no one should be alone.

As people get older and maturer, in most cases their values change. They begin to place less value in their material possessions and more value in their relationships; that’s why older people give more than younger people, regardless of their income. And, who wants to die alone? I remember in Tom Hanks’ movie “Cast Away”, he would have rather died attempting to go back home, than to live a life alone on a desert island.

There are many who feel that if you are not happy with being alone or single, then something’s wrong with you…well I disagree. Just because a person desires the friendship or affection of others, doesn’t mean they aren’t content with life. Everyone wants someone to trust, be around, and to share their ideas or feelings with, that’s natural and normal; and that’s regardless of their relationship status.

I absolutely love ♥ reading poetry! Poems are like songs of the heart with meaningful lyrics. I saw the movie “Poetic Justice” a few days ago, and as Janet Jackson read this poem in the movie it really touched me. This poem is called “Alone”.

Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don't believe I'm wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires
With money they can't use
Their wives run round like banshees
Their children sing the blues
They've got expensive doctors
To cure their hearts of stone.
But nobody
No, nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely
I'll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
'Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.
