Alone In A World Of Many

Updated on June 2, 2011

Lost In Your Own Mind

Everywhere I look I see people

All different ages both male and female

With life as amazing as it is

I bang my head against the wall

Trying to understand how could one feel so isolated and sad

There has never been a time in history where communication was so easy

Yet some people feel disconnected and shun from society

Like one book on the shelf of many

Never read always passed by

It sits there ready to give and share its wonders to the first person that sees it

Even though the book is in plain sight it is not seen

The corners of the book are worn but the meaning is still the same

It may not have a fancy cover as the new books but it has been around for generations

Each page contains many hints and tips to live a better and a more fascinating life

Why don't people see so many great wonders right before them

Are they too busy hurrying from place to place thinking there are so many places they have to go

When they are searching for the same things that others have found many years prior

Only to be left sittting quietly alone now

Is it the way of the world ?

Does it have to be this way ?

I see other examples of this life all around me

Like those people looking for a job and they can't seem to find one

Then you open up the help wanted pages and see ad after ad of positions that they could qualify for

Is it really that they don't want to work ?

They just want to complain again and again

Making excuse after excuse

For the life they now live

Is it that people really want to be left alone in their own living hell when they could easily be happy and content ?

I will never understand it

When they crave for interaction and get little

When they want just to be part of someones life who they care about

Other people don't see it or understand their loneliness

Left like a shadow in the the dark

All alone with a broken heart

How can we mend a heart that does not know how to be fixed ?

As we sit and watch

When we know there are so many other choices and endless ways to satisfy ones curiosity

All are left like an old newspaper tossed aside and never read again

      Apostle Jack We live a very short time here on earth.If we focus on the good will that not make life better for many.If we focus on the bad it will get us depressed and always find someone else to find fault or blame for the worlds mistakes and shortcomings.Gods word of peace spreads freely for those who are ready to listen.Thanx for reading.

      A good seed gone bad is one that was not meant spout.God's word do not return to Him void.

      Christ have said"I have overcome the world",be assured my friend....we shall do the same as well.

      Apostle Jack How about a good seed gone bad?Is it by choice or by nature?Thank you for reading so many of my stories that have been left alone and abandoned.

      We live by choice.If you plant bad seed...expect a bad harvest.The good seed is like victory on the battlefield.
