If you are lonely, take a bite

If you are alone, read a book

If you are bored, go to the kitchen and cook

To bid solitude adieu

And to keep depression at bay

Stop feeling lonely today

It is something you can tackle with ease

If you are agile, it will be a breeze

Don't let loneliness, give your life many a crease

Treat life as a memory and say cheese

Thinks about your losses and feats

Hear your own breath

Recall your secrets well kept

Speak to your conscience clearly

Embrace your inner self dearly

Think about the people you love

Of everything else, put them above

These principles you need to follow only

Never again will you be lonely

45) Being lonely is God's way of saying that you are one of the few people in the world who has a strong character to live by yourself.


46) Wanderings, explorations, journeys – these are the great products of loneliness. Then how can loneliness be a bad thing?


47) Being alone is tough

On some people it could be rough


Being by oneself can be depressing

An important issue this is addressing


Of this there is a sunny side

That I want to confide


You can make loneliness fun

By calling friends over by the ton


48) The more afraid you are of becoming lonely, the more you will have to face it in the eye.


49) Does fear precede loneliness or succeed it? Only a lonely person can tell.


50) Loneliness can be diluted with a little seasoning of friends and a drizzle of family. To get the perfect finish, sprinkle on some movies and swimming pool activities by the patio.
