Alone in my world

When darkness falls at nighttime
everything seems strange and monstrous
The trees stand out alone like animals
The paths of all the world seem overexcited in silence.
Alone in my world, I observe the sun perform its duty without distraction
The moon and the stars remain in their assigned posts
The rain, the rainbow and the wind do the same
The birds, the reptiles and every other creature are best on their own.
Everything that happens at nighttime belongs to the world of dream
Although an evening sky accompany the moon
My shadow follows me at some hours of my day
I'm not scared of being alone in my world.
As I lay down to rest the hopeless feelings of my worries seem to be forgotten
The best of everything goes by my side
I am happy and satisfied in my world
In my world of silence, I am at peace with God.
When I was very young indeed
I learnt to crawl away when hear strangers voice
I cried away my fears and worries at other times
I sort for help at the things that scared and frightened me.
I still have many reasons for my silence
I have been a graduate of experience from the college of silence
In silence, I learnt to be courageous, brave, bold, fearless and adventurous
I have not scared of failure, omission and defeat.
Alone in my world, I sort for fortune
At every thought, I have passed through the gate of adventure
Above me is the sky of destiny to guide my path
God has been my strength even when human intelligence disappointed me.
Across the morning of my day, I have come to understand people from different classes
I wanted them because they were my best companions
I consider myself a winner at all times
I am born for a purpose and a mission.
In my worries, my heartbeat is similar to a hammer
In silence, I sought consolation and the courage that had been in me
I march forward with resolute step after decision
With me in my world is God.
