What is the main theme of the poem 'The Loneliness Beyond'?
Like raindrops pattering
They come singly and in pairs
Then as a torrent the rush of feet
Shuffles onto platforms
Dragging the last strains of energy.
I've seen hearts palpitating
Behind a single maskless face
Tired from the hurrying of a city
Spirits maimed by commands
I've heard clicks of tongues
Laughter rising above the grouse of mouths
That never rest
From grinding complaints.
Like sheep herded into the kraal
They crowd numbered coaches
Hopeful of a safe landing.
I've watched the multitudes rub shoulders
And I've wondered what they do
With the loneliness beyond;
I've seen throngs of people
Disappear into little holes of resting
And I've pondered what might be happening
With the loneliness beyond
