Alone

Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don’t believe I’m wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires
With money they can’t use
Their wives run round like banshees
Their children sing the blues
They’ve got expensive doctors
To cure their hearts of stone.
But nobody
No, nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely
I’ll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
‘Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There was a distant echo as the winds blew strong. Outside, the clouds were a thick gray and black. Lightning struck as though it was coming with a vengeance. No one knew what was happening nor why. The lights in the house began to flicker. There has never been a storm like this before, ever, in the history of Astron. Everyone in Astron came out of their houses to get a closer look at what was transpiring outside. Clark, one of my neighbors tried to tell her something but it was too hard to hear with the wind blowing so strong. “I can’t hear you”, she yelled to Clark. So he ran closer to her. “Can you believe what is happening”, said Clark. Before she could answer the lightning struck the power lines and a fire broke out. All you could hear were screams of everyone yelling “fire, fire”. Everyone began running back to their houses. She ran inside to pack a bag of clothes.  She decided to drive to her best friend Tammy house. As she walked out the door a pole came flying towards her. Before I could duck it pierced through her stomach. A neighbor named Janice saw and she ran over and tried to dial 911 but the call wouldn’t go through. Janice sat and held her hand and stroked her hair until she took her last breath. At that moment she knew Janice was a great friend. Oh beautiful Astron, how she will miss your beauty…!

Day 1 – Your current relationship, if single discuss how single life is

So I am currently single and have been for the past 3 years. Single life is quite enjoyable for me. It has many pros and cons. I can focus on my self more, do the things that I want to do and take the time to really know what it is that I want and what I will not settle for. My last relationship was a disaster and all I wanted to do was be alone. I have come across some really great guys (2 to be exact) but I was still harboring on to feelings of distrust, hurt and disappointment. Which would not have made me a great significant other. Once I became more closer to God and getting my mind right, I didn’t harbor those feelings anymore.

Trying to get back into the dating world was one complete fail after another after another. I got to the point where I had become comfortable and complacent being single. I am at the point where I would love to meet someone and develop a great friendship that turns into something meaningful (like a committed relationship) but I have just not had the best of luck.

I have faith that when the right person comes along I will know it and I won’t be single anymore. Until then I shall continue to enjoy being single and working on my career life and getting to where I want to be!
