I am the only being whose doom

No tongue would ask no eye would mourn

I never caused a thought of gloom

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears

This changeful life has slipped away

As friendless after eighteen years

As lone as on my natal day

There have been times I cannot hide

There have been times when this was drear

When my sad soul forgot its pride

And longed for one to love me here

But those were in the early glow

Of feelings since subdued by care

And they have died so long ago

I hardly now believe they were

First melted off the hope of youth

Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew

And then experience told me truth

In mortal bosoms never grew

'Twas grief enough to think mankind

All hollow servile insincere -

But worse to trust to my own mind

And find the same corruption there

I am the only being whose doom/"

this is a powerful opening that shows how isolated the speaker feels. She sees the world as seperate because others have hopes and dreams and lives. in the last stanza, she realizes she is no different from the world. she is as cold and corrupt as the world. she can be given no friendship just as she cannot give friendship.
Realizing her own fault did not come immediately. we can refer to line 13 and beyond to reconize she discovered her own insencerity but only of late. the last stanza shows that she is pained. but is there room or oppertunity for reform? the reader must decide that not only about her, but is encouraged to think about that themselves.
