Sing O Restless Heart!   Posted on Jul 24, 2013    Comments ()

Do any of you ever feel lonely?

I have a piece of advice.

Just learn to walk alone.

You can do it.

You are strong.

Just remember.

You are being accompanied

By GOD ALMIGHTY

Have faith

You will never be let down!

 

I did not want to wallow in self-pity and avoided penning a poem myself,  decided to translate something and also reproduce stuff from the net.

 

I felt like writing this poetic blog because:

So, here goes …

 

Walk alone

Walk alone

Walk alone

You have come too far

From your crowded fair

 

Hence

 

Walk alone

 

The winding paths

Stretching thousands of miles

Invite you

To hear and bear lonely sadness

 

Yet

 

Could you point to a single person?

Untouched by loneliness and grief?

 

When there is none

To wipe your tears

Learn to love yourself

When deserted

Make the earth your bed

And

The sky will cover you

 

Little fella

 

You are yet 

To touch life's final homestretch

 

So

 

Walk alone

Walk alone

Walk alone

 

Song from the 1969 Hindi film classic Sambandh [relationships]

Hindi original lyrics Pradeep

I knew the poet for he lived in the same area in Bombay as me

Translation TSV Hari

 

Trapped, no shield, no sword

The unbeaten path got my soul so sore

Allured by the lust, something money can’t cure

The Devil want me as is, but God, He want more

 

Eyes closed, eyes open, great another day, here we go

Like a nigga woke up late in The Truman Show

Livin’ life without a care, mean poker face

But I’m forced to play solitaire ‘til I get up out of here

 

Move like a wanted man with a bounty on his head

Work alone, sleep alone, eat alone, daily bread

Countin’ till my fingers’ red, how you gon’ judge a man

Walkin’ in the shoes of a man with a broken leg?

 

Flame on the trail headed for the powder keg

Last place in the race I ain’t never led

Like I ain’t never bled, time to get up out of bed

Servin’ in the army of one, it’s on again

 

Walk alone, I walk alone, you know I walk all alone

I always been on my own ever since the day I was born

So I don’t mind walkin’ alone

 

Walk alone, I walk alone, you know I walk all alone

I always been on my own ever since the day I was born

So I don’t mind walkin’ alone

 

I’m in a chess match, I’m in a death trap

I’m tryin’ to find out where the eggs in the nest at

I’m one blood when the sky turns jet black

No love in the world can correct that

 

I’m in a slow lane, I’m on my Cobain

I’m in the new spot tryin’ to run a old game

I got a new chick, put out my old flame

No peace, no sleep, no love for a young beast

 

You can put me in a cage

You can put me in the jungle where the lion get blazed

There ain’t no hell like the hell I raise

I’d die in the bed I made ‘fore I lay with a love I loathe

 

I’m a snake in the garden of bones

I’m a loner in a world of clones

I’m the piece that don’t belong, see I roam

Where the Reaper roam ‘til they put my name on a stone

 

Walk alone, I walk alone, you know I walk all alone

I always been on my own ever since the day I was born

So I don’t mind walkin’ alone

 

The longest walk I’ll probably ever be on

The Road to Perdition, guess I’m finna get my plea on

I pray these wings strong enough to carry me on

I promise every second felt as if it took an eon

 

Walkin’ like the lost boys of Sierra Leone

The trail of tears what they got me like a Cherokee on

Between the ears somethin’ I require therapy on

For the workin’ to the bone like my name Robert Dion

 

I go above and beyond, the duty called, truly y’all

Even though they kind of blew me off like a booty call

Asked me if I’m just another muli or a movie star

Forced to face the music like a graduate of Juilliard

 

Walk alone, talk alone, get my Charlie Parker on

Make my mark alone, shed light upon the dark alone

Get my sparkle on, it’s a mission I’m embarkin’ on

A kamikaze in the danger zone far from home

 

Walk alone, I walk alone, you know I walk all alone

I always been on my own ever since the day I was born

So I don’t mind walkin’ alone

 

I walk a lonely road

The only one that I have ever known

Don’t know where it goes

But it’s home to me and I walk alone

 

I walk this empty street

On the Boulevard of broken dreams

Where the city sleeps

And I’m the only one and I walk alone

Another one

 

Walk alone

Walk alone

Walk alone

 

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me

My shallow hearts the only thing that’s beating

Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me

‘Til then I walk alone

 

I’m walking down the line

That divides me somewhere in my mind

On the border line of the edge

And where I walk alone

 

Read between the lines of what’s

Fucked up and everything’s all right

Check my vital signs to know I’m still alive

And I walk alone

 

I walk alone

I walk alone

I walk alone

 

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me

My shallow hearts the only thing that’s beating

Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me

 

I walk this empty street

On the Boulevard of broken dreams

Where the city sleeps

And I’m the only one and I walk alone

 

My shadows the only one that walks beside me

My shallow hearts the only thing that’s beating

Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me

‘Til then

I’ll walk alone
