Although surrounded by other people
My challenges, my fears, my world, unknown
The circumstances are just deceitful
It is really just me, myself, alone;
Alone together in today’s cohort
Feeling isolation with such forlorn
Quiet time to myself I must purport
That is, that is for what I truly yearn;
Vivid cacophony inside my head
A great many voices, but all my own
Brooding on mistakes past, failures ahead
Self-indulgence, I guess, I must bemoan;
      Forever Alone? That’s not just a meme
      For what is true may not be how it seems.
