City of Unnoticed lumps

Even in the massive crowd,
and under dozens of neon lights
and lighted street lamps,
Even among the loud chants
of basket-laden sellers
of cheap toys and snacks,
desperately needing the people’s attention,
Even among the sounds
of cutlery and frying pans
from smoky food stalls
bearing newly painted banners
about their delicious foods
in very reasonable price;
I still hear the silence
of my heartbeat
and unspoken loneliness
which still cages me
in dark isolation
despite that the city
is crowded with the greasy apartments
and the newly constructed towns
and the pamphlets,
bragging about the
futuristic projects in pipeline
for Connecting people together
calling them “our home”.
So, pity me,
that even in the noise,
I still hear whispers.

Loneliness drifts us away from the light and positivity. It gets us near to darkness and make us feel numb, deaf, and away from the reality. It makes us think that even there are thousands of people in this world, no one really cares about us.

It’s so sad how our insecurities and loneliness can make us a prisoner of our own life.

“I still hear the silence
of my heartbeat
and unspoken loneliness
which still cages me
in dark isolation.”

“So, pity me,
that even in the noise,
I still hear whispers.”

The loneliest people are the kindest.
The saddest people smile the brightest.
Means that the soul that sees
beauty may sometimes walk alone.
Think that may be they designed to be alone.

Being drowned by loneliness and getting isolated by the darkness is an unending maze wherein you dont know where to start and where to end it. It is really sad that we are alive outside but we are also dying inside. When sadness and loneliness strikes we tend to isolate ourselves, hoping to be found.

“So, pity me, that even in the noise, I still hear whispers.”

I think this is all about the loneliness that the main character is feeling. He is anxious knowing that in a crowd of many people, he is battling with life, all by himself.

Its just so sad that even there are things that can give light to your life, it just happen that you are trapped in your own darkness. Even how hard you worked for it and yell it out at your best, people can’t seem to hear you nor see you.

I can relate it with our society today. I think this symbolizes the forbidden and unheard protests of the people who used to fight for what is right. In terms of the government today, those who are in the position to lead the country tend to manipulate the truth by providing the mass, and exposing them with a lot of false facts to please and encourage them to get their hearts. Good example is the upcoming election, these familiar faces who are currently running still have the guts to run even though they were involved on an unethical acts before. Furthermore, people who used their voices to fight for what they believe in are most of the time taken down, as if they do not exist, worse, their words were being restrained by someone in authority.

I can picture the happenings in our country today. These whispers symbolize the unheard protests of the people who fight for what they believe in.

I can picture the happenings of today. The whispers symbolize the unheard protests of the people who fight for what they believe in, up until now. The cries of the victims.

Being alone is different from being lonely. Loneliness is a feeling of empitiness, and the feeling continues until we forget our purpose in life; we get lost and unhappy. So when we feel this kind of feeling, it is better to seek the people we love the most that we know, will never leave and judge us.

Loneliness isolates us from the real life ??
John Rey Dungca Present ACT 184

People think that loneliness is the scariest pit we could ever delve into. Even though there are a million reasons to smile, some people still can’t cure the sadness and the feeling of being left out completely. Yes, we can hide the pain, the scars and the unending sorrows with laughs and smiles, but at the end of the day whatever we hide will still show up. But fear not for we are given the assurance that all our pain and suffering are temporary. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Even before we feel the stinging sensation of being alone, God already left us with his words. He already redeemed all our sorrows and pains even before we asked him to.

I believe that we all deserve happibess so why let lonliness conquer us right? Everyone must understand that life is awful so let us not conform with the pattern of the world to be happy. Let’s choose to stay happy.

Already living in the darkest side of life tht even the brightest stars shines on you, you were unable to see it because of staying in these four walls. ACT 183

Jenny Sylvia Eustaquio

Even though we are surrounded with a very joyous aura of people we cannot hide the fact that we are lonely. There are times when loneliness creeps in to us and it affects us big time. Sometimes when we feel a hint of happiness we question ourselves if it’s genuine. And it is very hard to deal with it especially when we feel hopeless. That is why the saying “fake it till you make it” sometimes has a good outcome. It gives us the chance to continue without thinking about our problems. That in the long run we will realize that we can overcome things that we didn’t expect to. We just have to face and live life.

ACT183-PRESENT

Some days are just bad days, not everyday is going to be good. Let yourself suffer from sadness for it is the way to experience happiness.

ACT 183

Dark isolation in this world is a concept of what we are fearing of- the loneliness. Thinking of fighting every battles alone because of what we feel is devastating.

ACT183

Sadness or loneliness keeps up far from the reality that there are people who makes you happy however sadness imprison us and numb us from the happiness and enjoyment outside. It is hard to listen to them because the feelings inside you is not the same outside.

It was hard to feel loneliness in our life because we tend to overthink things. By overthinking we started to feel alone and started to isolate ourselves. We just have to give ourselves a time to think and to breathe to cope up from loneliness.

Even though there are happy things that surrounds us. We cannot deny to our self that their is sadness and loneliness that we feel that everyone will never know.

“…I still hear the silence
of my heartbeat
and unspoken loneliness
which still cages me
in dark isolation..”

Even the crowd with full of noise can’t beat the loudness of the negative mind and the loneliness that you feel and no one will be able to hear this.

ACT183

“Unspoken loneliness which still cages me in dark isolation”, this line indicates that most of us feel like a balloon which is looking bright and cheerful but empty and lonely inside. Being drowned by this is helpless if you wouldn’t help yourself to swim in vast ocean of challenges. It’s okay not to be okay but learned how to train your mind stronger than your emotions to survive this life.

ACT183

Loneliness is part of life. We cannot be with our friends and family all the time but we should learn to enjoy every moment even if it is just us with nobody. For many years of existence, I have realized that being alone for a moment doesn’t equate to sadness because sometimes it is necessary for us to be apart from people to be able to think and reflect on our life. It is okay to feel sad as long as you know your way out.

PRINCESS LEAH BANOY
ACT 184
Everyone has their own feeling of sadness and loneliness, a feeling that may sound like a joke for others but a sincere and something all want to escape for. “No man is an island” and we all want to have atleast someone to be with, share our feelings, and live the day, but nowadays, i think people are slowly learning to be always on their own then eventually saying that you feel isolated and not being cared for. In this world, with billions of people, there are people who sincerely cared for you and wanting to be with you, it is jus that you choose to see what you are looking for and not the people looking at you! Dont be afraid and dont be discouraged! This word is filled with happiness if you choose to see and feel it.

They say, life is darker when you were once given light, than never having light at all. But that darkness shouldn’t be a reason for you to give up, to surrender it all. Hence, it is where your courage should came from, to continue living your life, until you find the light and happiness that you deserved.

“being alone never felt right. sometimes it felt good, but it never felt right.”

There must be something that bothers you alot, unsolved problems that still hunts you that’s why your mind isn’t in peace.

April Ann Moselina

I know how hard it was to feel a life shrouded with loneliness. Despite that there are many people around us, we always need someone to be in our side. A true person who can ease all our pain. Sometimes we just need them so we can’t feel any loneliness at all.

Oftentimes, we feel like the world is up against us alone, that we are facing the hardships of life without anyone to count on. This causes humans to hopelessly yearn for someone’s attention and feel sad if tested by rejections.

So to all the people who are alone, know that someone is up there who knows no bounds and is consistently to hear you out.

ACT 183

Loneliness ls one of the saddest thing that a person can experience. Being alone is not just about the state of isolating youself to others but it is also the emptiness you feel inside of you. Something in which you think is missing.

ACT 183

Loneliness is part of life’s journey. Our perception in life makes us feel unique and different and sometimes lead us to feel lonely. Let’s just accept that we have our own journey and storms to be deal with on our own.

It sucks that there are many people who tell and make us feel that they love us, we still would feel alone.

Even how wonderful and cheerful the world around us is, if we are sad and have loneliness inside, we can’t appreciate those things. We’ll be focusing on what we feel inside, not on what our eyes see.

ACT 183

We can hear our hearts crying for it suffers from loneliness. Nothing can ease the pain unless you accepted the things that happened in your life, after all life goes on even if you’re ready to go with the flow or be stuck on your own isolation.

It is indeed sad how u can notice or see the loneliness in a person’s life. Self assurance isn’t found through another’s eyes.

Sometimes, despite everything around us being festive or loud or upbeat, we tend to find that small, nagging feeling that still makes everything dark and sad. Maybe we just need to allow ourselves to be happy. That sometimes we can ignore those small whispers that hinder us from experiencing life in a very pleasant manner.

Loneliness is an emotion that naturally occurring when something happened unfavorable to you. For you to ease this kind of emotion, you should learn how to save yourself.

Shaivie Rose Javier
ACT-184

Despite of a happy environment, a person can never be happy if he is too focused on the negativity. Besides being lonely is not a bad thing if you know how to be happy and contented with yourself.

It is very sad that there are people or other any reason to be grateful and happy about life, and yet we still choose to be sad, to be lonely.

It is quite saddening to think that there are some people who views life negatively. Live isn’t perfect as it is but i’m pretty sure that there are so many things in life that could set a glow, to brigthen up someone’s day. I hope people will always choose to be happy and grateful regardless of their status and may they always see the light in every morning to come.

Life is made balance. If there’s happiness then there’s sadness. If there are tears then there are smiles. If there’s rain then there’s rainbow. We need to experience all of these for us to learn. It is normal to feel empty despite having all. It is normal to be contented despite having nothing. It only depends on the people, on how he will deal with his life. If he chose to be like the person portrayed in the poem, it is his choice to be drowned to negativity. But let me add just a piece of advice: God is the greatest companion that we can ever had. He will never leave us. So please, smile amidst all the chaos within your mind, leave all these to Him, and one day this fake smile will become genuine as you realized that He already wipe away the tears in your heart. ?
