how to be (alone)



I saw this here today and it makes me want to write poetry again.  Because she said it better than I've heard it my whole life and it resonates with me.


...but lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless
and lonely is a healing if you make it.

...because if you're happy in your head 
then solitude is blessed and alone is okay.

[poetry by Tanya Davis]


Here's just wishing for a happy and blessed weekend, alone or with company.

that is lovely. i don't know if i agree, since i think being alone is freedom, but being lonely is a terrible feeling. loneliness, however, can be the trial before getting to Okay. then again, that's what poetry is... it plays with the semantics and can make or unmake a word. thanks for sharing.
