Poetry on Sunday: Being Alone

People are often afraid to face their own
It is because we are social creatures?
It is because we do not know ourselves?
Once you have grown to be comfortable with yourself
The idea of being alone does not scare you anymore
But I am wrong
It is not about being comfortable with yourself
It is about not being afraid of the unknown world
Once you start to recognise the unfamiliar as familiar
Being alone will become a calming thought
Only then people are not afraid to face their own
While being alone
