Not Alone

There is one sense

Everyone is alone.

No-one has had

Exactly the same past.

No-one thinks exactly

As I do.

No-one understands

Precisely what I’m feeling.

No-one is me.

No matter how well

I express myself,

No-one can relate

100 percent.

Is that so bad?

Not really.

It makes me strive for two things…

1. to be understood.

2. to listen carefully to others.

I’ll never truly soar

If I spend too much time thinking

About my internal isolation.

And

I’ll never reach the heights

If I don’t make a conscious effort

To reach out to others.

I can at least let them know,

In their feelings of isolation,

They are not alone.

Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others (Philippians 2:4, NIV).
