For one who never did belong to another soul

There is freedom in loneliness

For one who was never given much

There is wealth in small things like a warm bed or a cold glass of water

For one who was never told the truth

The honesty between the lines of every lie is sacred

For one who never had support

There is security in the shifting of each day and the turning of every tide

For one who was ignored

The attention to detail is proof of life

For one who was injured deeply

The world will always provide the person to reopen the wound just as it starts to heal

For one who was discarded like trash

There is a need to hoard everything of value

For one who was persecuted

There is never enough justice to balance the scales

For one who was imprisoned

There are no bars but those in the mind that are without a key

For one who was never loved

There is nothing else that matters, not breath, food, money, shelter or success.  Just a constant quest to fill the lack

    1. Well B, I seriously dig that you seriously dig this. 🙂 I thought you might grasp the reality of some of this your own self.

  1. Oh Val, this is incredible. It reminds me of Desiderata from an entirely different perspective. Positively brilliant and so wise. I must link to this. Thank you for writing this, it is so true, and in every line I could see a familiar face.

    1. Thank you Danielle, for liking this, because I’ve just introduced you to myself and as you say, a few others like me that you know. hugs

    1. Thank you Jessie, this is why I write anything, to make others remember to feel certain things, but never boredom, never that! hugs
