I Stand Alone

I Stand Alone

A Poem by Inject Positivity

I stand alone on weakened feet
On the darkest shore of the wide earth
I hear my weary heart skip a beat
Searching for the purpose of my birth

Cutting my soul with swords of grief
Leaving my body lifeless and cold
Red tears falling on the dying leaf
How to face this pain I'm left untold

Which road now I should take?
Should I walk on the Sandy shore?
Or once again a mistake I will make
Choosing the darkest path to the door?

Memories of pain and darkness is all I can think
Now I'm praying for hope to save me before I sink

"I Stand Alone"
Inject Positivity,
A theme of the freedom to live, fail-learn and grow seemed to the voice given in this particular poem. Choices and opportunities are the reality of life. All people have this in common; to push through, to even grind through and learn from our mistakes and try to not become bitter when things happen and life is not fair.
Beautiful honest portrayal of the reality of life. Things are often just hard. Things change with time as do we through it. Blessings to you. Love your writing.
Blessings,
Kathy

I read poety to help me think, or remove me from where I've landed . But sometimes a poem moves me to write... As this one does.

Watch the rain
For it may be your blessing
Pain of your own
To relate to another
One whom may capture your heart
So alone is not you
Rather another filling your arms

beautiful imagery. I was able to envision a warrior trying to carry on on this battlefield of life. I felt a sense of strength in carrying on and facing these dark times you are facing.

Thank you very much frnd, I really appreciate your visit on my page...
This is a very well-stated message to describe the dark & painful feelings of walking alone thru this life as you've had to do many times, but especially lately. I'm sooo sorry for the big hole in your life, since your mom died. I've been wondering if you could be strong enuf to write about how it feels & post it on this website. I think this is a good thing, both for your progress in healing & also to show others how it's OK to just sit with our sadness awhile. The worst thing is to rush into some new idea of how life goes. When we are at a crossroads, it's best to just take our time deciding what to do next. Hope is the first place to start. Nothing can happen without hope. Thanks for sharing in a very naked way. It's one of the hardest things a writer can do (((HUGS)))
