Alone
 
If you asked anyone who knew Barry how to define the man’s life in one word, it would simply be, “alone.” At first this might seem an odd statement. If you watched the daily events of Barry’s life you find a person that is quite sociable. He works a customer service job and as a result has great people skills. I believe some people call this the “Gift of Gab.” Barry has the very pleasant talent of being able to carry a conversation with anyone. He knows how to match the speed an intensity of a hyper person on caffeine. He also knows how to slip into a somber and gentle tone for people who are dealing with problems. Barry is just an all around great person to sit down and talk with. At the same time, though, when the conversation is done, you will stand up, walk away, and leave Barry, alone.
 
Barry loves to hang out with people. He’s always finding himself going to a bar or hanging out at some kind of social event. He can frequently be seen mingling with the crowd. It is not uncommon to see Barry at the movies, with a group of friend. Sometimes, late at night, after an event, you can even spot Barry hanging out with a crowd at a local restaurant or café. He’s always finding himself in the crowd. But when the bar closes, when the social event ends, when the movie is over, and when everyone leaves, Barry is alone.
 
A shoulder to cry on, that is the usual designation that Barry falls under. He’s a good friend, a best friend even. He’ll always be a great friend. Barry’s friends are always telling him how someday, he’s gonna make an awesome husband and a great father. When he goes on dates the women are always pleasant with him. They treat him well and he treats them well. He is always the gentleman, with a fun sense of humor. He can make people laugh, and make people think. But in the end, when the bill is paid, when the night is done, Barry goes home, alone.
 
Barry is not without his faults. Every person in this world has faults and Barry is no exception. Some faults seem bigger then others. To some people they are deal breakers, and to other people they are tolerable, even forgivable. In faults and in perfections, Barry is alone.
 
Barry is alone. One day, hopefully that will change. But for now, Barry is alone.
