The loneliness of Poverty

by Barry Delaney January. 22, 2009 3709 views

Woke up this morning fealing chronically lonely, full of the woes of life , will I ever find true love … does love exist … I wandered into a shanty town , and its inhabitants didn't care about love, or a gloomy financial fear of tomorrow .. all they cared about was today's hunger … survival … suddely I fealt gratefull for what I have and am … and maybe Love in its traditional sense does not exist, and I began thinking does it really matter ….

It takes two to make love , and finding another person on the same plane as me ... is the problem .... and I'm probably a difficult awkard complicated persone to deal with ... who likes his own space :-)

Always good to put things in perspective for ourselves. The best part about love is that it is partly a decision you make...

some people say that love comes when you don't expect it
