She Laments Her Loneliness With A Smile

By Daniella Djiogan

She’s scared of the darkness

She’s scared of being alone

She’s sad, but not to the point of depression

She knows that someday, all she values will leave her

She tries to hold onto them with laughter, love, gifts

But deep inside she knows one cannot escape destiny

She knows her efforts will go in vain

And she will be left alone


She dreads a future without her loved ones

But she knows she will someday be happy without them

Because she shares in their happiness

She loves them

She loves them with every last ounce of love she can offer

So, she laments her loneliness with a smile.
