    LONELINESS is defined as...

    Sadness as a result of being forsaken or abandoned..

    But one cannot define the feeling of loneliness with words.
    It must be felt by that individuals heart and spirit.
    Even if only a second is the time you have 2 feel it.

    Loneliness is...
    A girl smokin' mornin, noon and night, to get away from the family fights....

    Loneliness is...
    Being in a group, yet feeling like your the only 1 there....

    Loneliness is...
    A daughter crying because she just lost her dad to the unforgiving hand of a man....

    Loneliness is...
    Your "love" leaving you because of someone elses lie....

    Loneliness is...
    Having a loved 1 in the hospital, wondering if they will be alright....

    Loneliness is...
    Writing this poem, wondering why God puts us thru these things.When He calls me home I would like to ask Him...
    What good comes from...this feeling of abandonment?...
    Imprisonment in ones own self...
    The Spartanism of the desolation can be life threatening depending upon the situation...
    God does not want seperation
    Between Him and His creation
    But I come to a stymie trying to figure out.."why me?"

    Weary and teary eyed
    Wonderin' why....

    Why my family fights more then the man apporximal from me..

    Wonderin' why....
    I cant just be happy

    Wonderin' why....
    It had to be her daddy

    Wonderin' why....
    He didn't save my teacher from the dispensary

    Wonderin' why....
    Im still writing this poem...
    Hmmm...I dont know
    I guess my ballpoint still searchin for meaning...

    being in the womb...alone
    feeling fluid all around...alone
    tossing, turning in the silence..
    needing, wanting....something
    i am alone.....lonely?
    lonely
    and the time seems so slow
    as i ponder growth..
    and the lonely trembling...fear?
    what is clear
    I need to get out of here
    pushing..pressing...kicking
    coming through a tiny passageway
    coming through
    coming out
    out of the wetness...tears?
    out of the darkness....light?
    understanding
    that loneness can be lonely
    and I've got to fight it
    push out..against it
    to see...to see
    aah...
    i breathe
    i can be
    i can do
    i have will
    and choice
    to move beyond the lone
    to find the energy that
    protects me...from
    lonely
    I am

    BAGLADY
    you inspired me to flow free...thank you for that...and for your poetry...
