Advantages Of Living Alone

Rating: 5.0
I can
control of my remote, or bathe in the sacred
silence. No one knocks me
out of a dream balloon when i'm
sleeping. My papers are where they
were when I come back into
a room, and the food I wanted
is still in the frig. I need not leave
the room for
a once a month attack of
flatulence. No one tells
me when the dishes should be done.
I don't have to go to dinner with
his relatives
with whom i have nothing
in common. I decide how
my money is spent. Nor need
I worry where he is

Advantages of living with
another or in community:
the banishing of loneliness..
the oneness of universal love

Very good poem and so true. I always say to those who are miserable with someone, there are worse things than being alone. You put this very well and I give it a '10! ' Warm Wishes, Marilyn
