Stand Alone, Stand Tall!

Don’t you love being alone in the crowd?
Millions of stars in the universe!
A part of it and yet apart from it?
Don’t you adore the anonymity it gives?
You could be anyone and get lost in it.
Lost but not truly lost!
As you would have you to know and identify.
The mass of life passing you by
Like a rolling stone – each rolling, each unique.
Alone but not as alone as you could be
If you lost your self, your identity to the ebb and flow of life around you.
So you stand apart from the crowd.
How does it matter so long you have yourself for company?
And that of a couple one or two just like you.
Being different is no chore, no fault, no sin.
How would you feel if you lied to yourself and you were untrue?
Wouldn’t that be the worst kind of betrayal?
Worse than being apart from the crowd, alone in it?
Unbind the chains you’ve wrapped around you,
Change is the only constant – even time, the mightiest, falls!
Stand alone, stand tall – the weight of one is no weight at all.

Life in Binary…

A keen sense of loss,
Intense is the desolation,
Dreary seems the world,
I’m going through the motions.

The motions that are necessary,
If you want to call yourself alive,
Though I do wonder what use is life,
When it’s just meant for pain and strife.

Or is one meant to,
Conquer all and emerge a hero?
What use is such analysis,
If the only denominator is zero?

The zero that begets infinity,
An infinity of life and death,
And whatever goes in between,
A recurring chain of binary!

All human lives and actions,
Replaced with zero and one,
That I see no exceptions,
Similar patterns, unique none!

Now I see the code of life,
Everything is suddenly clear,
There’s no pain or strife anymore
Only the path to action!
