They say I’m lonely because I am alone
They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other
They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.
But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?
Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?
And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?
I often hear their stories
Of how falling in love lifted their worries.
They told me I have been missing out
But I hear nothing of this. I don’t hear them shout!
To have someone to call your own, they say
As if you can own a person, I dare say.
Why can’t they see that I am fine on my own?
I am fine being just by myself until my hair is grey and I am nothing but bones.
I can stand him not loving me……
……I can’t dtand him loving her
The trees are taller
Birds sing louder and sweeter
Flowers are brighter
But I am not on the other side
I simply changedhed the way I saw my side
Wish I could be
someone else other than me
One who does not cry easily,
one who’s strong, steady and sure most preferably
I wish I was more confident
strong and prominent
I wish I wasn’t such a weakling
inconspicuous like rain slowly trickling
Sometimes I wish I wasn’t me
but is there someone else that I could be?
