"

I like being alone.

I like drinking coffee alone, and reading
alone.
I like riding the bus alone, and walking
home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my
mind free.

I like eating alone, and listening to music
alone.

But when I see a mother with her child, a
girl with her lover, or a friend laughing
with his or her best friend, I realize that
even though I like being alone, I
don’t fancy being lonely.
