Yourself #Poetry


You have to learn to be content with sleeping on your own,

With sitting by yourself, 

With singing by yourself.

You have to learn to be content with thinking on your own, 

With singing by yourself, 

With fighting by yourself.

You have to learn to be content with being on your own.

    hey it sounds we are both in the same class right now! haha. trying to learn how to. It is so weird, I have been an adult for years but right now, I feel like a child that has never slept alone and is afraid of the dark.

    I really had to learn this after ending my relationship. I had previously been in long term relationships for and added amount of 10 years and it was the first time I was truly learning how to enjoy myself, and being alone… I now know that it is one of the most important things, to learn how to love yourself and learn to be happy without another person there to facilitate it. Love the poem. 💋
