have you ever felt alone in a city with 202,340 people?
I used to feel so alone in the city.
All those gazillions of people and
then me, on the outside. Because
how do you meet a new person?
I was very stumped by this for many
years. And then I realized, you just
say, Hi. They may ignore you. Or
you may marry them. And that
possibility is worth that one word.
– Augusten Burroughs
I may not go up to someone and say hi in those hopes
but even so should i not say hi
the least i can do is say hello to a stranger
maybe they are a bit more confused or alone than i feel myself
maybe a hello will make those feelings dissipate at least a bit
at least for a while.
What can one do to feel alive?
shall they fill their time with things they would enjoy
do the things they have not for months or maybe years.
I believe the things you enjoy should bring you happiness
on some level.
To try some things is a challenge
a step to be taken in faith
Therefore to you I say ‘hello’.
Want to help me start over –
be who i want to be
doing the things i enjoy?
