All Alone

Updated: Feb 6, 2023

This is a poem which ended up with a chorus attached to it.

the contents of my life

in brown cardboard boxes

stacked high

labelled with a black scrawled

hand write

the past the present

made me think

about the rest of my life


long hours all alone

no friends a lonely soul

no rock n roll

the best times already had

the thought of the future

makes me sad


maybe if I was younger

fear I would not hold

I’ve never thought about

loneliness before

but now it bangs shouts

at my door

will this feeling ever go


long hours all alone

no friends a lonely soul

no rock n roll

the best times already had

the thought of the future

makes me sad


I’m sure this is just a passing thing

a mid life crisis

of emotions caving in

after all the history packed away

was not always the best of days


long hours all alone

no friends a lonely soul

no rock n roll

the best times already had

the thought of the future

makes me sad


so it’s time I got on my way

Carpe diem that’s what they say

time to move look forward

not back again

the past is boxed don’t open it again

maybe then it will disappear

the fear of loneliness

that’s inside me


long hours all alone

no friends a lonely soul

no rock n roll

the best times already had

the thought of the future

makes me sad
