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.
