About the Poem

I wrote this many years ago during a time of contemplation. I have been a part of it all... Molestations, rapes, lost loves, miscarriages, neglect, abuse, abandonment, blackballed, the deaths of beloveds, the deaths of friendships, of relationships; There isn't much I can think of I haven't experienced, and sometimes the whole thing exhausts my mind in the contemplation of it all. I am a natural loner and often feel alone.....thus, the poem.

A Few Visitor Comments

this is a great poem thanks for making it for me to see.

A Wish

If no man is an island,
Then why do I feel
That I am one of sand?
Oh, to be ethereal!
So the oceans of life
Cannot encroach upon me
And with their strife
Must leave my shores be!
