It is the middle of the night: Alone
And the darkness is a sad sight: Alone...
When your demons you fight: Alone.
Yet so can be the daylight--when alone.
While listening to your heart pound: Alone,
You seek rays of hope as you look around: Alone.
Vulnerability is profound: Alone.
No, nothing so sinister as the sound of alone.
What disease is contained within? Alone.
It is as dark as the chiefest of sins: Alone.
Nobody knows why or it's origin: Alone
Nor can we pinpoint when it begins--this Alone.
No one can fix it; no drug, no friend. Alone.
We are meant, by ourselves, to mend it: Alone.
By God are we placed here; right then, not Alone
Yet we always seem that way to end: Alone.
For years I struggled. Tried. Fought. Alone.
I read. Wrote. Cried. Sought: No, not alone!
Yet even in crowds, I seem to be caught: Alone
I learn much from the lessons taught by Alone.
Still I've YET to know how I came to meet Alone.
I guess one must go deep inside to stop: Alone.
If one has herself, one is not: Alone.
So I'll be safe for that I've got, though alone.
