Afraid to be Alone (Poem)

Afraid to be alone,

Desperately wanting a love to stand by me,

Letting bad people in just so I wouldn’t be alone,

I let them mistreat me,

All because I didn’t want to be alone.

 

Loneliness hit me around those who mistreated me,

It was like being alone,

Still I didn’t want them to leave me,

I didn’t want to be completely alone,

I didn’t have faith in me.

 

I didn’t believe that I could be okay without those who mistreated me,

I didn’t realize life would be so much better without those who mistreated me,

I used to think life was better with those who mistreated me,

I hadn’t realized that they were also making living hard for me,

Most of all, I didn’t think about me.

 

It was until age reminded me that I’ll end up with regrets if I chose to stay,

I didn’t want to look back and see that I never knew a moment of happiness,

Thus, I chose not to stay,

I walked away from those who didn’t add to my happiness,

Now I’m thankful that I didn’t stay.
