By Myself

I always thought that being alone was a sad thing,

But that was before I knew about all the joy that it could bring.

As time has gone on, I have gotten more and more used to being alone,

And that in many ways, it does tend to help me feel like I am at home.

It is a place of peace, where I don't have to worry about being fucking me over or talking about me behind my back,

And it has taken me a long time to realize that it has nothing to do with me, but it is their confidence that lack.

As I am getting older, I see more and more how so many of their "friends" have two personalities depending on where they are,

And that they choose who they are going to be everyday, and they leave the rests of the masks in their jar.

It took me a long time to realize that being lonely really is just a state of mind,

And that once you are at peace with that, you realize that you will be just fine.

Even when you are with people. if they are the wrong ones, you could still end up feeling alone,

And sometimes these feelings could go deep into your head and cut you to the bone.

However, it is up to you to decide how you handle being in these types of situations,

And it is up to you whether or not you choose to have these tough conversations.

You can only take so much from someone before you realize that you are begging for them to notice you,

And it hurts, because you know that this is something you would never do.

With everyday that I live, I realized that if you keep waiting for people you are never going to get anywhere,

Because, at the end of the day, I realized that a lot of people really just don't care.

I have realized that the best thing you can do is keep your head down and shut out them all out,

Because at least that way, you don't have to worry about living your life with doubts.
