To be alone
To be lonely
These are not the same
To be full of hope for the future
To reflect on the past
These are reflections of one another
To dance alone
To sit in a crowd
Protecting yourself from being watched

Insisting on ‘all or nothing’
Means you are afraid of something

To be sad
To despair
These are the sky and water
To die alone
To die among friends
These are not good choices
To live alone
To live forever
These are the same

Dreams come true
When they are no longer dreams
