Stand

She stands alone in a world full of companions.
In a word full of pairs she stands unshaken.
embracing the circumstances burdened
on her by the almighty.

My solitude
My birthchild
I stand alone and feel complete.
the life that chose me,The life i have chosen
I hear the almighty in solitude and feel mesmerised
hypnotised by the loneliness that frightens so many.

The world misinterpret completion
causing havoc to millions of souls.
The world defines completeness;
a state of been with another.
Her soul begging to differ with such misconception
She feels complete standing alone.
She stands complete.

Silence speaks
with an unkown,unheard tone
in the wind it speaks.
in the rain it speaks.
It speaks when i pause to listen.
It is the voice within me,the voice of me.
the voice comforts me,heals me.
In the silence i am reborn,
It is in the silence that i am made strong
In the silence I speak

Should i then be afraid of my own soul?
Hide from the voice within?
Should i be lost in the masses?
Lost in the preconceived notions of the world.

This is who i am,I stand alone.
not lonely,but alone in solitude
fulfilled by the silence of it all.
