When You Decide To Be Just Yourself - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when do you decide to be just all alone?
when the rest are out on their own
seeking pleasure
and their vested interests
veiled by their supposed kindness
you give up
friendship and camaraderie
following instead your own light
like a star
alone on its dark paths
still lighting itself
despite.
