Alone

Reflective Poem

Reflective Poem

 

The moment when you realize
how you actually feel
you do not miss what you
thought you were
or who you were with
you do not cry over an imagined past
built by society
and you reject
somebody’s arms
because the moment for that
has passed a long time ago
with the river of regret

You look in the distance
and let yourself go
to the melancholic
to the warm
and mona lisa smile
you embrace the warmth of autumn
and you are proud
to have overcome your sorrow
and greatest fear of being alone
by choice
because that is the only way for you
to build
your own world
and be yourself
alone
