Alone I Walk

a poem by Sahil Ashok Kanetkar

As these shadows grow longer
My faith grows stronger
Faith in myself faith in her
That girl whose face I’ve seen never
With myself as I talk, I know
That, in this world, alone I walk

Not that I have given up on myself
I just left my heart on the shelf
Why did I do that I don’t know
Don’t want to think of someone
This reason maybe so
I reason with myself and my reasoning
But one thing’s sure as a rock
In this world alone I walk
