When I am Alone

When I am alone
I get scared, when I am alone
I wonder why why I am alone? When I am alone
I flow in the night sky, I see the star and the moon talk to me in my soul,
When I am alone my spirit flows free in ocean waves, I dream of peace
When I am alone I believe that I own a bank,
I sing and dance until I die, I write poetry
When I am alone I ring the bell in my heart, I pray to god,
I go beneath the earth finding a soul trying to break free after 45 years,
When I am alone I feel like a hole filled with souls trapped with love in them,
When I am alone I go get my dog, dream he is always happy to see me,
When I am alone I wait for the war to move on,
I see a feather floating wondering where it is,
When I am alone I feel like a robot needing juice,
I feel like a baseball getting hit,
When I am alone I feel like an exclusive director of a movie,
When I am alone I am the color pink, purple and blue
like the heart and soul of planet earth
pink for love, purple for peace,
blue for sadness for the people we lost,
When I am alone
I am
me.
