Alone But Not Lonely

Alone but not lonely
Broke yet not poor
Down, yet not out
Smiling, but not laughing

Blessed yet not enriched
Hurting though not pained
Hearing but not heard
Risen yet not rising
Old but not elderly

Living..... Though, Not alive
Sweet and never sweetened
Angered though not angry
Fearing..... but not afraid

Awake and often woken
Beautiful, Inside and out
Anxious to lose these anxieties
To find again real life

Too honest
Hungry for success

Alone but not lonely

A great captivating poem. Thanks for sharing.
A great poem with historical narratives, gives us a feel about the emotionally charged atmosphere following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the great black leader of America.The poem is all the more valuable as it comes from the pen of the one who actually experienced and a witness to events of surcharged emotions.
An excellent write. Good details and emotions permeates the assassination of Dr. King. A part of history that will be forever etched in our heart. Stunning.
Martin Luther King Jr. lives on. Great narrative of an incident that bring tears to the readers' eyes.
Wow! A powerful poem. Had me captivated from the beginning to the end. Well done.
