Not Alone

not everyone

can get to go

on big adventures

in this life,

some of us have

only little things

to find joy in;

getting a day off

from work,

going for a walk

with the October moon,

peach iced-tea,

chocolate ice cream,

a good movie,

a big book,

and your own

sweet company-

some of us

are happy loners,

with half-empty pockets,

introverts by choice,

not necessarily our own,

but we still have a lot

to be grateful for!


“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper
