Isolation

scrambled up

the side of that hill

too far away...

to go there still


a place to go

to get away

and put behind me

another lost day


being alone

or feeling lonely

just isn't the way

that's what they say


I'd sit and stare

at the valley below

wondering who is there

and where they all go


a place to dream

of a future not far away

but just dreaming

doesn't realize the day


being alone

or feeling lonely

just isn't the way

that's what they say


want to climb down

off of the side of the hill

and be a part

of something real


a member of something

bigger than me

that is where I long to be

to be truly alive... living the dream


being alone - sucks

so don't be - you aren't anyway

that's what I say

I don't expect you to understand

I liked this very much. Lennon was inspirational, and this is a wonderful tribute.

Thanks Genna - glad you liked it. Lennon is a very special person to me as well. I still remember standing in the living room when MTV announced he had been shot and was dead. I thought it was such a horrible waste and we were robbed of what he could've offered the world for decades more.

I also enjoyed this one very much indeed. Isolation is indeed terrible and sitting here at the keyboard in an empty house it sometimes feels as though I'm very much alone - and then I meet someone like you and I know I'm not really!

Thanks for sharing this.

Love and peace

Tony

Thanks Tony. I guess the poem is a bit of a cry from a 47 year old momma's boy who misses his mom. She passed just over a year ago. It created a void. Thanks for the comments.
