“I’ll do it alone”

Said the woman
Before she threw herself
Off a jagged cliff
Of rugged self determination-
Pioneering a new way
Doesn’t mean walking alone,
The path may be unbeaten
But it doesn’t have to be lonely.
And just because no one
Understands what you’re trying to do
Doesn’t mean you should stop trying
To find your tribe,
Not everyone’s gonna get it
The first few times around.
Yes, it often looks like
Doing it alone
Means doing it better,
But we can all agree
That more often than not,
It is our stubborn pride
And not our team spirit
That leads to our downfall.
