I am one

Who begs forgiveness without a sound
Repeatedly yet with no hint of success
An attempt to shun despite the emptiness
To gather without celebrating body and blood
And in foriegn territory when she is gone
I'm all by myself without a single sole
Then forsaking mankind is the answer to my prayers

And I am one

Quick clarification - Is it indeed supposed to be 'sole' and not 'soul'?

"There's no such thing as 'one, true way'; the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself; leave the world better than you found it. Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good -- they're the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren't willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race." -- Diana Tregarde in Burning Water by Mercedes Lackey

Hey there andromeda, am afraid my answer is not as poetic as your response. Thanks so much for the compliment. Please give it another go.

Spoiler for 2 quick guesses...

Hey DD - neither, but do see where you're coming from. This one's, well, let's say I'm a little worried. Want to say more but maybe will try to give it a bit of time first.
