SOLITARY TRAVELLER

I walk my journey in this world,
This life of mine, alone.
I may have friends, but who are they
Inside their skins, inside their heads?
Are we ever more than strangers,
Nodding acquaintances?

I know I guard my inmost feelings,
Afraid to expose my limitations, my flaws,
Lest these strangers be not worthy of my trust.
Yet there are some I feel I have known forever,
In previous lives,
And others I should really know, but do not.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  5. Hi Adee…that is a bit sad…one has to let people in…sometimes it doesn’t work but when it does there is nothing like a good friend.

  6. Ah, well spoken… I find myself becoming more open as I get older. I think you’re right, we can never truly know another. For that matter, how many of us can say we truly know ourselves? 😉
