The Poem

I was invited to contribute my thoughts

To a podcast on the subject of loneliness

Needing time to process my reply

I didn’t know what to say

Then later someone inquired

Ronald where have you been

And I just smile and said

I’ve been here, didn’t you see me

It’s lonely out here


- Ronald Amanze
