W.B. Yeats once wrote


W. B. Yeats once wrote:

“It takes more courage to examine the dark corners of your own soul than it does for a soldier to fight on a battlefield.”

in the experience of an adopted only child


the lack of grandparents which nurture and spoil

the missing siblings which rival and share

the idea of cousins to play and mischief


elder parents who leave their lives early

while you are still young

absent from your weddings

and birth of your child


quiet holidays, no family gatherings….

loneliness is a dominant emotion


one learns the art of silence, focus, minimal

expression and the quiet dis-ease around others


one appreciates animals, flowers, green living things

imagination soars into the clouds and sky above


the soul grows…   unbridled from

distractions of the so called normal life


the heart is open to the patient calmness

the aliveness and breath of existence

the miracle of the maya


suffering lives in the thoughts not the reality

unhappiness lives in the comparison to the collective


love, peace, and joy are the result of understanding

the greater growth your soul has come to experience


the lost souls follow the mass, goes to war, believes the misinformation and defends it.... and finds their experience...

existence offers many possibilities and potentials

I must say I do not know what being an orphan means because I had my grandparents… All four of them and my parents for a very long time.

But I don't ever remember my grandparents spoiling or coddling me. In fact, they were tougher taskmasters than my parents.

Perhaps you were an adopted child and only child
so you could write your observations down on paper
expressing to all who read it...

The life of a "loner" (for one reason or another) leaves much time for reflection and meditation.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray 5/24/2015
Never having met my grandparents and most of my "extended family" since my parents came here from the "old country," I can relate to what you express through your verses, Debby. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,

I was pretty much a lost soul, Debby . . . A lot here to contemplate . . .
