I think we've all felt like this at one time.

There comes the silent moment
I look back on the years,
The losses and the changes
That brought on all the tears.
My life's a single pebble
The tide takes from the beach,
Lost among the breakers
The shore is out of reach.
I drift so far from others,
My hope is out of hand,
And like that single pebble
Washed to a distant land,
I'm tossed back from the ocean
And lost among the sand.

If you drop a pebble into a pond its ripples cross the pond. are not your words like pebbles, droped into the pond of humanity?rcs

Tossed back from the ocean, but the ocean is so peaceful a place to me. You are not lost among the sand, you are revived and going on from your losses very nicely.

an excellent description of a feeling of helplessness...of being the recipient of whatever whim the fates might have

this is very, very good. it reads very well.
