Lonely As I Am

Poem By Shalom Freedman


Lonely as I am
Life goes on-
There is so much to love in life
Even a certain kind of Loneliness
can have its Beauty
And longing for Someone
Can mean
There is still Hope after all-

Comments about Lonely As I Am

Its short, but in only a few words you have expressed in subtle detail a very beautiful meaning for life. If your feeling alone you must be in bad company is a quote from Sartre or something like it. I think what you say about beauty in loneliness is deeply truthful especially for a hermit like me, I feel a freedom to be me that I could never be with a group of people, their is liberation on the path you choose to walk. A marvelous read.
A beautiful poem. Lonely or otherwise, life goes on. And yes, a certain kind of loneliness is sometimes a bliss, and is beautiful too. 'There is so much to love in life' - none would dispute that, I guess. Truly, there is so much to love in life! Very well said! 'And longing for Someone Can mean There is still Hope after all-' - So well said, I can easily understand. But I do not understand the use of capital letters in some words in the middle of the lines. I guess, that has been deliberately done to put emphasis on the words. Is that so?
so much to love in life, I like it, thanks.

All I Wanted Was Poems

I didn’t want other kinds of words
I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try
I am too old now
And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
