Alone

Why was I only 5
When the world broke
And I realised 'pain'
Was more than scraping your knee
And 'alone'
Could last forever
Why was I still a child
When eternity claimed me
For it's unexplained destiny
And why,
When I could hear the world calling me back
To it's life of innocent uncertainty
Could I not break free?
It would have been easy
To let go, die peacefully with everyone
And I would not be alone
But the truth is
Everyone is alone
(and united in that fact)
So we don't have to be alone forever
Just long enough
To find our purpose
