To be lonely is painful,
To be alone is liberating.
I wonder if people will understand this difference.

Enjoy.

To be lonely is to want others to bond with, and finding none.
To be alone is to separate willingly from others.

But, it is not good to always be alone.

This is so true. I am never more lonely than when forced to interact with uninteresting strangers.

Oh god, I couldn't agree more. Not only is it boring, but you're right, it's lonely.

Some don't. But a lot of people seem to. XD

Brevity is the sister of talent? I like that very much.

Thank you.

I used to think they meant the same thing, but I later started to realize that loneliness is well... negative.

I am so glad you were able to express this concept in such an elegant yet simple manner. As I've grown older, I have realized that difference. Loneliness is often crippling for we are made for connection and affirmation. However, being alone is actually freeing once you get to the place where you are comfortable and confident of yourself and able to enjoy those still, fleeting moments of your life how you without having to rely or seek anyone's approval, taking the amount of time needed to engage in whatever suits your interest. Thank you, I think this was really nice

I love how people's take on this varies a bit, and the best part is their all right. Everyone has their own definition of just what this poem means.

XD I like your take on it. I agree. ^^
