Consolation-Little Poem #18


My only consolation,
In this world of despair.

When there is no one I can find,

Is, that even in constant isolation.
My shadow follows behind.

      1. Just wondering really.
        I don’t know your specific circumstances, but I struggle when I’m physically without human company to remain greatly cheerful. It’s something I struggle with on each level of my being, and I need to keep in mind that God is always present with me and has promised me strength if I simply ask for it.
        On another point, God has provided human companionship to alleviate this lonely burden that was present (although in a different manner) even when Adam was created – Eve was created as an helpmeet for him.
        Now, I know it’s not the same, but if you ever feel lonely I’m here to talk to (if it would be helpful to you). You have my email address. I wish you well.

      2. My specific circumstances are what have isolated me in a way. I live alone in a hostel without my family(who are miles away) The people in this city are all quite busy, no one seems to have the time to have a decent conversation. I have been labelled as the “grandma” for my love for books, tea, theatre, fountain pens etc seems too old school to people my age.
        Plus because we shifted so much all my life that I take a lot of time to adjust to a new person. By the time I’ll thaw people walk away. All I have is God. And I know he is there for me. But sometimes I wish I had some human company too. I have tried to get out there, and made all sorts of efforts but they seem in vain. Perhaps till the time I am not comfortable with being the way I am I will never be comfortable with others. There are no right or wrong answers here, so the process of trial and error continues.
        That is very kind of you. 🙂
