Walk on the road, alone!


I want to walk on a long road. A road where I see nobody. I want to walk alone and talk to myself, laughing and crying on my own. I, on this road will understand what I like, why I am the way I am, what makes me hurt, what makes me love, what makes me live. I want to realize all these things, while I walk alone that way. Maybe while walking I’d realize something that I had never thought of. I might find those dreams, that I’d never had.

As I think about walking on that road alone, I find myself a little scared. I wonder about what all I might have to face as I walk alone. I might get hurt by falling down, get a few scars, be in so much pain that I am not able to hold it in, that I am not able to handle it on my own, and since no one would be by my side I’ll be even more scared, thinking, “Perhaps this is my destiny.”

If I think optimistically, I might even have the happiest moments of my life, on that road alone, with myself. I might even fall in love with me. It might happen.


I can’t stop myself from trying to walk on that path. But whatever it may be, I know one thing for sure, that I’ll be able to do it as long as I believe in myself. And there’s no reason to think of, that would make me stop, cause I’m a human, and humans can rise up the ladder better if determined.

You too, can surely fight. You too can walk on that lonely road. You too can be friends with your fears. You too can do it, as long as you believe.
