"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Loner

Don’t be scared of life, of the cold anonymous world.
Cut the wires that feed your fears.

Live today as if it would be the last day left on the face of Earth
Even if everything may crumble around you.

Don’t listen to your clutched fists
Don’t hear the bad words flying around you.

Don’t hide from your dark side.
You have yourself and your gentle thought rising above your eyebrows.

Join your heart for a ride deep inside yourself,
Turn your arms towards who you really are and embrace your soul.

When you will be your own friend
You will never feel empty again in your silent corner of the loner.

  1. Five years ago you left one of the first comments on my blog, so I have returned here to catch up with your world. I was struck by “Turn your arms towards who you really are and embrace your soul. When you will be your own friend
    You will never feel empty again in your silent corner of the loner”.

    That has made its mark. Thank you Ela
    Somedays it’s very difficult to like yourself.
    Regards
