We are not alone…

we-are-not-alone-use

It may be uneasy times but we are not alone.
The wonder and the steadfastness of the
human spirit shows us this every day.

There are times we may come close to falling
in a wee world of neurosis designed to
rob us of our own strength and resolve,
making us feel uncommonly alone.

At these times the spirit of family and community
come together to celebrate the very art
of the human soul; the strength in humanity.
Others will reach out and hold our hands and tell us
We are not alone.

Even beyond this fact and  in those times of
low eyes and weak knees we can become
enlightened by our own reservoir of old souls.
They seem to become enormously alive
when called upon in dire times of need.

So when there is a trial to face, a dragon to slay,
We don’t have to wear a tight face or crumble
into a pile of cracked shards because
We are not alone.

About DiAnne Ebejer

I am retired and live on the East coast of Florida where I spend much of my time reading, playing with photography and trying to write some "poetry and then some" at dianneebejer.wordpress.com. I care deeply about many things and wish there was much more love and compassion in this world today. I also have a part time blog "Thought You Might Like This" diannesthingsat.wordpress.com used for special projects and occasional things of interest
