We have family and friends.  They are always around us.  People surround us.. but in the end, we are really just alone.  When you think about something, its just you speaking.  Its your own voice you hear and your own thoughts you see and ponder on.  There is nobody inside you but you alone.  In your life, there is only one timeline.. your own.

The thought of it makes one realize the essence of being alone, but not leading to "loneliness".  Its not about being sad that we are alone.  I think its the confrontation of this fact that makes me realize that I can cross different timelines and be a part of other people's lives.. but in the end its my own that will matter.  And so, I shouldn't bother about making myself known to others.  Its more important for me to love and know myself.  Its a tough world we live in and everybody is just out on their own.


Title: Out Here on My Own
Artist: Irene Cara

Sometimes I wonder where I've been,
Who I am,
Do I fit in.
Make believein' is hard alone,
Out here on my own.

We're always provin' who we are,
Always reachin'
For that risin' star
To guide me far
And shine me home,
Out here on my own.

When I'm down and feelin' blue,
I close my eyes so I can be with you.
Oh, baby be strong for me;
Baby belong to me.
Help me through.
Help me need you.

Until the morning sun appears
Making light
Of all my fears,
I dry the tears
I've never shown,
Out here on my own.

But when I'm down and feelin' blue,
I close my eyes so I can be with you.
Oh, baby be strong for me;
Baby, belong to me.
Help me through.
Help me need you.

Sometimes I wonder where I've been,
Who I am,
Do I fit in.
I may not win,
But I can't be thrown,
Out here on my own,
Out here on my own.
