I Stand Alone

It is human to stand with the crowd; It is divine to stand alone. It is manlike to follow the people, to drift with the tide; It is godlike to follow a principle, to stem the tide. 


I stand alone closing my eyes not desiring anything to see. I stand alone with the darkness that is encircling me. I stand alone in the chilling cold of the night. I stand alone  too scared to go near the source of light. I stand alone till my rage changes to grief. I stand alone like a water drop falling from a leaf. I stand alone with no one to assist or to guide. I stand alone and nobody understands my plight. I stand alone frightened to fell. I stand alone having a mystery but not aspiring to tell. I stand alone totally exhausted of my life. I stand alone thinking to finish it by cutting my wrist with a knife.

  2. Nice shot. I thought I had earlier seen this picture. Then read the line below the picture and remembered having seen it when I was looking at your first post.

  8. The last thought is not good, Samir. Standing alone also has a taste, standing with the crowd also has its own charm, if life is always smooth, you take it for granted and hence, the ups and the downs.. never think of ending life, because life is very valuable, very beautiful..
    aandhi toofan, bijli baarish,
    hawayein, mausam, phool aur bahaarein
    yeh sab nahin dekh paaye toh kya dekha..

    1. 'I STAND ALONE' is the theme of the image. It is not in my nature :)
      And I wrote last line just to make it rhyming with the previous line. :))
