Left alone

All other apples have been taken
or fallen down just like the leaves.
Its confidence might have been shaken
or it still triumphs over thieves.

Being left alone feels stranger
than the concealment in a crowd,
and certainly presents a danger:
“I am here!” the shout is loud.

But if you stay true to your stock,
you hold on strongly where you are,
and all temptation does not rock
your firm belief in who you are.
