Evolution of a Poem

Me and I

Written in 1974 for the UCMS literary magazine.

Alone.
An island
In a sea of people.
They stare.
They stare at me.
Because I am different,
I am alone.
But I am not lonely.
Oh no.
Being alone
And being lonely
Are two different things.
Two completely different things.
As different as day and night,
As boys and girls,
As red and white.
But someday, I will find
A friend.
Someday I will find a
Friend,
A true friend,
And then I will not be
Alone.

(c) Lynx, 1974
