Lonliness

2 Co. 12:9 – And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

No man is an island


The lonliness makes one weak

The solitude makes feeble knees

Even the most sane men

Have found themselves insane in the end

Oh what tragedy, that we somehow

Can be undone by something not found

That the absence of presence

Can be so impacting as to deafen

The flickering fire of life that hides

Deep inside our lives

It’s been truly written, no man’s an island

At some point, we all need a helping hand

Ever since the Garden of Eden

Man’s been in need of a companion

We are not loners, made for isolation

But social beings, desiring incorporation

And so we find ourselves seeking company

Friends, family, a lover to last eternity

Something to bind that need

That cries out inside you and me

And it happens, sometimes, if by chance

Or choice, or life’s unflinching hand.

We find ourselves alone, or so it seems

Crying out for someone to intervene

And we find ourselves in a cold dark place

With no one to wipe the tears off our face

And God seems so very far away

And God knows we need someone for company’s sake

But somehow it’s not His will

And somehow we must soldier on still

If the loneliness makes one weak

Then consider the opportunities before you and me

For in weakness, we can find strength.

God is freed to move when we have nothing left

In fact, for the power to be unleashed

We oft need to be in a place that’s weak.

Yes the lonliness makes one weak

But remember, before company you seek

It’s in our weakness that we can find strength

We only know our bounds when there’s nothing left

It’s when our muscles are too sore to move

That they then recover stronger than ever

And it’s only in trials and circumstance

That we see what we need to be better persons

So maybe it is, that we find ourselves weak in lonliness

So that we can muster the strength to emerge victorious!
