Tools of Man

Lonliness is a tool of man
It’s used at times
When he doesn’t understand

He hides in himself
And with passing time
He tries to forget
Bad times gone by

Comfort and joy
No longer there
He’s just looking
For someone who cares

He yearns for someone
To ease his aching mind
But they’re elusive
And hard to find

One day we’ll not need this vise
For we’ll learn of it’s heavy price
One day we’ll learn to cope
And replace the tool of lonliness with the tool of hope
