No Longer Alone in a Crowd

Updated on April 28, 2013

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.

      kids and Annie, Thanks to you both for reading and commenting. Even when we feel alone and as if no one cares, we are not alone and God cares for us very much.

      Lovely poem, lcbenefield. All it takes is the realization that we are never really alone.
