AloneA Poem by SomeoneSomewhere
Small poem written from an unlikely perspective. Enjoy!
As the first light shines,
And the rays pierce through the night,
Scaring away the shadows,
They fill the dark with light.
I find myself watching,
With the concentration drawn on my face
I find myself thinking,
“Will I ever possess such grace?”
And I feel a smile begin to spread,
As I stretch my hand out and see,
How with two fingers I can hold the sun,
Or at least that’s how it seems to me.
And as I sit there waiting,
For patience I’m quite good at,
My world comes alive;
I see a bird; a dog; a cat.
And as the sun draws high,
Nigh on the zenith of its path,
A group of children come running,
A ball in hand they hath.
And as I start to join them,
Thinking what great fun it’d be to play,
My shadow falls on top of them,
And they start to run away.
And as I watch them,
Their faces tight with fear,
I stand alone, rejected;
Never to draw near
A single tear rolls down my face,
Followed by some more,
I look up at the sky,
Loathing what I’m for.
For to them I’m not a friend;
I can never come to play.
For to them I’m not the sun;
I’m just a rainy day.
