I Stand Alone

I Stand Alone

A Poem by CircusNerd

Today, I stand alone

Tomorrow:

When I fight my wars, brethren will stand by me

When I advocate peace, friends will stand by me

When I cross boundaries, fellow men will stand by me

When I riot for rights, protesters will stand by me

When I pledge for friendship, humanitarians will stand by me

When I call out to the needy, philanthropists will stand by me

When I share my tales, listeners will stand by me

When I cry my myself to sleep, a new day will stand by me

When I drive myself to exhaustion, a night's rest will stand by me

When I reach my true potential, a greater mountain will stand by me

When I overcome all obstacles, wisdom will stand by me

When I wake from this beautiful dream, reality will stand by me

Today, I stand alone

Tomorrow, I stand by someone

all by ourselves were all alone
freaking amazing as usual
when you can trust noone else you will stand by yourself
but that time will never come
well done again
but you never stand alone

Man...this is a shot of pure adrenaline!
The potential energy here is scary to think
about if unleashed.

The repetition here reminds me alot of a tri-tone
as it builds and builds in a loop with no resolution.
It creates a whirlwind of emotion around the reader
that seems to have an infinite amount of energy.

You did a brilliant job of keeping so much tension.
