I have company in my lonely abode

Arriving and departing, the door is open and revolving

The guests come, some offer bloom, others gloom.

They’re the memories, family, and friends,

Karmas’ notes, complaints, and compliments

Environments, weapons, wars, and fights

Politics, poverty, religions, and human rights

Cherishing hopes, jokes, and anecdotes

In this lively, and spirited noise

Consciousness joins as an in-house voice

And the party goes on, in my lonely abode.
