Alone

Speak to me

Emerson & Thoreau

Speak to me

Let me be alone with the stars

 

I am me, no imitation

Obeying my inner voice, 

Loving my best self. 

 

Can I trust my friends?

Figuring out their motives, 

Do they like me for me?

Or are they only for a season…

 

Here I stand with nature.

Goodness abounds.

I am me, no imitation.

 

Here I stand alone

All by myself

Trying to be strong,

All on my own.

 

Transcendentalism

(A hard word to say)

About being yourself

No matter what they say.

 

That one T word!

(Still can’t say it)

I really tried my best

But it’s difficult...

 

I love to be alone.  

I loooooooooooooove!
