Understanding Alone

Here is a poem, about a quiet girl who has more to her, than is apparent. People constantly judge her, and she remains lonely. Until someone realizes than the way to reach her is to be a friend.

The inspiration for this poem 'Understanding Alone' is a book I just finished reading last night. It was about a girl who is trying to be 'someone' and everyone is so wrapped up in their own busy lives to realize that she is heading towards danger. It just made me think about the fact that some people can be so lonely, and that sometimes they try to become 'someone' by changing the way they are.

But the best way to be is yourself. So the message of this poem is that we should try and look out for those who seem lonely and get to know them. Because there often is more than meets the eye. We have to try and be understanding, then things can change in a big way.

Understanding Alone

Don’t look at her too closely

For what she is, is not there

You won’t see it in her rag-doll smile

Or the way she walks

 Without a care

There is more to her than meets the eye

Something that no man understood:

Within her there is a story

One she’d like to share

If one would simply take hand

And told her, they were there.
