Friend of a Loner

Dear friend,

I read your note, and I feel so glad that you expressed your feelings so clearly.

I deemed it fit to respond, even though I doubt that you expected one.

Yes, the world can be noisy and busy, yet there`s some calmness in it.

There is love in the world; give it, and you`ll definitely receive it.

Frown to the world, some of us are willing to care for you.

Show us the actual state of your belly, some of us have food to spare.

Discuss your conflicts with us, for we are better together.

The world has some positivity, you only need to surround yourself with the right people.

There is darkness in the world, however, there is light too.

People cry, yet people also laugh.

Some of us care to know how you really are, we don`t ask out of mere salutation.

The world has hate and love, you can`t miss both, but the one you seek, you will find.

Your next step is to move on, dear friend. Leave the past, and make more productive decisions.

Help is available, dear friend; stretch out your hand, a willing hand has been waiting.

While you contemplated telling your chatmate the truth, you left my message pending, my calls unanswered. I wanted to know how you really were.

Don`t stay in your aloneness, as there are selfless people willing to care for you.

Yes, people have their problems, yet they help others.

Stop the prevarication, my loner friend, quit this solitary lifestyle.

Yes, there are times you need to be alone, however, there are more times you should spend with people.

You need people, and people need you.

You are made for community, dear loner friend.

May this note be the last in which I refer to you as a loner.

Dear friend, I end this note with the words of Hezekiah Walker:

“I need you
You need me
We’re all a part of God’s body
Stand with me
Agree with me
We’re all a part of God’s body
It is his will that every need be supplied
You are important to me
I need you to survive.”
