Not Alone

With animals, no.
In nature, no.
With God, not anymore.
But with humans, yes.
Since I can remember,
I’ve always felt different.
I’ve always felt alone.
It’s mostly my own choosing.
My own fear.
Opening up gets you hurt.
But if I want to connect,
I have to have the courage
to open up,
to talk about the things I
don’t want to talk about.
Because maybe I’m not the
only one that feels that way.
Maybe others feel alone too.
Then, that’s connection.
Then,
we’re not alone anymore.
