I used to dream
About saving the world
Now I only want the world
To leave me alone
Just a short poem. Enjoy.

Edit: there was a typo. It's corrected now.

Sometimes we long for loneliness only to realise we want companionship.

Loneliness has its advantages. But we can't live alone.

I referred that it is true the concept of your poem, most humans when they're children as they are innocent, gullible and ignorant they dream about being a hero and sacrificing themselves for the good of the world but after reaching adulthood those babyish fantasies are broken after knowing the sad true about the world and had been hurt innumerous times by other fellows, you realized the world is not pink but darkest than coal and hell itself.

And I agree. That's called "growing up". At firdt we want to change the world but we end up just survinving there.

yeah that's very true I guess humanity is imminently going to extinct in not so long dragging with us a lot of other species and natural resources

True, we're on a path of self destruction. It's only a matter of time...

I have those moments... But attempts to try and change the world a bit never hurt.

Yeah, we can try. But sometimes we just want to have a moment alone.

yes, mostly I like to be alone but sometimes need to talk to someone. depends on how my mood is doing. the world thinks we need to be uber social-
Reply
:iconghostoftheemptygrave:
I guess that's what the Internet is for. You can be alone and still communicate with people.

Is "No" in the third line a typo? Did you mean to use the word "Now" instead?

Yes, it's a typo. Gonna correct it now.
