Sometimes I feel lonely, as if something (or someone) is missing. But last night something clicked...I realized that I don't have to be the center of attention or always have a boyfriend just to be content. I don't have to be anything but me. If that means being quiet, that's okay. Sometimes silence can speak louder than words.

Last night I felt like an outsider looking in

Watching the smiles and laughter,

Seeing the abundance of joy,

Witnessing their fellowship

At first I was annoyed,

Upset that no one was calling my name,

Hurt because I was not needed,

Angry because I stood alone

Then I realized something:

Silence can be beautiful

Listening can enlighten you

Being still can show you God

After that I knew

That I would be okay

That things would be all right

And I had a reason to smile

Last night I felt like an outsider looking in

Watching from a distance

Made me understand

That only I candefine myself.
