We All Walk Alone Sometimes

When one feels they are alone in this world it is a lonely place.

Many times I have felt alone, but realize the love that surrounds me and the feelings seem to evaporate.

I have heard the saying we come into this world alone and leave it the same way.

Is being alone or lonely no more then an illusion?

A perceived perception?

Our personal reality.

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

Hunter S.Thompson

In all due respect he died with a shotgun blast to his head by his hand.

I was not alone when I was born, I came from the connection of my mother who carried me lovingly under her heart.

I do not believe I will be alone when I am at the door of death. I believe angels will be surrounding me and singing to the tops of there lungs.

It exhorts the listener to continue his or her journey, despite abandonment or lack of support from others. The song is often quoted in the context of political or social change movements; Mahatma Gandhi cited it as  his favorite song.

It is a song written by the Nobel prize winning poet Rabindranath Tagore, and is a part of the Rabindra Sangeet canon.

If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.

If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone

If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.
