Okay With Being Alone (Poem)

I struggled with being alone,

Somehow I got through my days alone,

I survived being alone,

Yes, I cried because I was alone,

Yet there were also times when I was able to smile while being alone.

 

Perhaps nobody cared about me,

Perhaps they did,

Truthfully, I realized what mattered most was the feeling within me,

It wasn’t all about what others did,

I realized that I needed to have faith in me.

 

I had to believe that I had the ability to face the obstacles alone,

I had to believe that I had what it took to take care of me,

I had to work extremely hard to convince myself that I was okay being alone,

After all, I can’t force anyone to care about me,

Yet, I can learn how to be okay with being alone.
