No friend to console
No teacher to guide.
You are alone, left to fight.
No school to go
No one to support
You are alone in your own boat.
No praise, No charm
No one who understands.
You are alone, in your dreamland.
No tears, No laughter
No rules to follow.
You are alone, Life seems to be hollow.
No work, No talks
No concentration or coordination
You are alone, with the feeling of alienation.
No emotions, No feelings
No one seems to be near or dear
You are alone, fighting your fear
No curiosity, No pleasure
No agility, only dullness
You are alone, only silence and emptiness
No one, No body
Nowhere, No thing
You are alone, you cannot think
You are not alone.
You are always with yourself
It is not the time to run, hide or escape
but, time, to give yourself some time,
to realize your real self,
and look for hope.
Rise and get back to life.
It is time to appreciate the light in you.
To realize it’s not only about you.
Connect the dots and move to a new boat
Set the anchor right,
row again with an even greater force.
You maybe are alone, but, with yourself.
