No Longer Alone in a Crowd

In a group

Surrounded by people

Yet I feel so alone.

I am scared and sad

Barely keeping my life together.

Won't someone reach out to me?

I just need a kind word or

Maybe a genuine smile.

Someone take interest in me and

Be my friend.

Tell me I am worthy of love.

Hug me and show me I deserve human contact.


In a group

Surrounded by people.

I feel so loved and loving.

My life is full.

Many pleasures I enjoy.

I reach out to those around me.

I take interest in their hurts.

I offer a genuine smile.

I give away a kind word.

I offer warmth in the form of hugs.

I let others know they are worthy of love.

I try to be a friend they need.

I give away the attention I so desperately crave.


God's Holy Word, the Bible, tells us in Proverbs 18:24

A man that hath friends must show himself friendly.

Feeling overwhelmed by loneliness? Reach out to someone in your life. Maybe a neighbor needs a friendly hello. Maybe a friend needs a hug. Maybe a cashier needs a smile. Maybe a coworker needs someone interested in them.

Blossom, you are correct. We need each other. We are created as social beings.
