'Listen' has the exact same letters as 'Silent'. Coincidence?

Alone, an original poem by PoetryGrrrl

on June 1, 1992

Alone in my mind,
I search for myself
seemingly never to find.
Alone with past thoughts and
the feelings they brought
I am hidden from prying eyes.
Alone with my fears
I can shed lonely tears
or enjoy the silence
and waste some time.
While seeking myself,
I am often sidetracked
by what I never imagine I'll find.
Alone in the space of
my own private place
I can reflect on my life and
rebuild shattered dreams.
I have time to imagine and
time to cry;
I am free to be truthful or
free to deny;
there is no one to judge me,
there is only myself,
unafraid to be me.
