He labeled me a loner
Is that really what I am
Because I do not care to gossip
And choose not to join in

Is it because I don't mind
Doing things alone
Or does independence threaten
Those who are not so strong

Perhaps I am just tired
Of saying so many good-byes
Or becoming part of the gossip
Based on facts; flowered with lies

It's peaceful, quiet and calm
There's no hate and discontent
I really like what I am doing
To me it's heaven sent

I could call some friends tonight
But I would rather stay at home
Maybe a loner I truely am
But it's funny ...I don't feel alone

------- Author's Notes -------

One of my friends at work today nonchalantly said I am a loner, Hmmmm, guess it must be a good thing. Cause I am happy.

Alone ???

You have such wonderous gifts I'm sure,
To build a site were all can adore,
Many pass through this way some even stay,
All these people you bought together through your gift in sharing such beautiful words.
through day or night you could never be alone.
Thank you for being the beautiful person you are Becky

Everybody calls my uncle a loner, that's always been his second name...he just smiles and says yes that's me, I can stand on my own two feet..alone, I can spend the day by myself..alone, I enjoy being alone, but I never feel alone, because I enjoy me... great poem Dreamer

I meant to finish what I was saying, and hit, My uncle enjoys being by himself, he says the worlds to angry for him...He loves being at home, he loves being by himself, and he says he never feels alone, because he says he is happy with hiself, and life

me too

Next time someone calls you a loner say thank-you.When I realized I was a loner I noticed mt life was peaceful,content and happy. being a loner was not stressful. Being a loner doesn 't make us lonely. We don't have to put up with the crap that others can put on us.

I've always been called a loner-but like the peom i never feel alone. I just love to sit and read a good book.

people that feel alone are people that don't want to be alone, people who urge to belong to something...u are obviosly apart of something
