Learn To Be Alone - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

Survival depends on your ability
To manage things yourself
There is an adage in our locality
Which means that
Despite the fact that
Fetus and mother are together
Their mouths and digestive organs are different
Even in this apparent unison
There is a need for loneliness
When it comes to survival and existence
As no one else will eat for you
As no one else will digest your food
As no one else will breathe for you
As no one else will think your thoughts
As no one else talk your words
Even in the midst of millions
You are alone and managing
There is a need for every one to understand this
And there is also a need for every one
To learn to be alone
To be for yourself only
For sometime each day
And watch your own self
For your own development and growth
In unison with every thing around
For your own compatability
With things and people nearby
For your contribution in others'
Progress and advancement
The art of being alone
Goes a long way in enhancing your personality
In finetuning your attitude
In broadening your knowledge base
In advancing your farsightedness
In improving your objective assessment skills
In enlarging your acceptability
In extending your range of kindness
In knowing what you really are
So, learn to be alone
And peep into your personal zone
