Not alone

I am not alone after all. 

It’s my thoughts 

That were leading me astray

Telling me that I’ll always 

Walk alone

And that I prefer things 

That way.

But we all know 

That the defence mechanisms

We developed to cope with our fears

Are merely tough exteriors 

Are not who we really are. 

We were made for community,

Wired for connection,

Our personal fate tightly woven in 

With the fate of those around us-

Indeed the only way we know 

How to walk in the first place 

Is because someone else

Showed us how.
