And Then It Was Me

Not long ago,

I realized I was alone. 

For the first time in twenty-two years,

I was making ALL the decisions, shifting the gears.

Moved out and financially stable,

I had been putting food on the table.

But I'd always had community,

A companion, you see.

Now it was only me, in an eternity, a sinking sea

Until I let acceptance well in my heart,

I focused my path like the head of a dart, 

No one else was holding the keys,

It was me.
