The Singles

Thanks to peperonity for the photograph.

they say loneliness is an unsavory situation
self-inflicted instances brought on by choice
expedited by a mindset of rigidity
too-this, too-that, not enough of either
by the perpetrator or the perpetrated
irrelevance reeks across this line of thought
shadowing the intentions of an individual
with the expectations of the masses

is single still that bad?

I see a culture steeped in disloyalty
drowning and choking on self-righteous anger
blasting forward the youthful minds to degredation
yet fully expecting individuals to be happy together
cohabitations been more difficult as of late
and I see less and less solidarity among them

is single still that bad?

the states of mind shallow further in mud
fantastic ideas stick as they’re sinking
the problem isn’t with loneliness at all
it begins on what’s considered alone
too many by far feel that in a crowd
many more than that at home

is single still that bad?

a war declared on loneliness
must by one on culture bred ideas
of what is and isn’t an individual concept
alone does not mean lost
alone does not mean broken
alone is for each what it is

is single still that bad?

    Couldn’t agree more. Your writing has the ring of truth in every word and every line of this poem. Truly fantastic.
