There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you–just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.
Today, I woke up blue. I felt alone and weak, and wondered if I would ever fill this empty gap inside of me – this unexplainable void. Don’t know why, but this horrifying pessimism took control of my regularly blinding optimistic nature, and the world turned gray. As hard as I tried, I could not lift the cloud, but I went to meet my friend for coffee, anyway.
I flat out decided to feel sorry for myself. I literally did the moping shuffle to the coffee counter, and whispered my order of a caffe latte with a triple shot of espresso. Coffee is not the best for my sensitive skin, but when you choose to mope, you throw all caution to the wind.
I strongly believe that a healthy dose of self-pity goes a long way every now and then, if for no other reason than to help you realize how much there is to be thankful for in the end.
So, my girlfriend and I were sitting at an outside table, talking – well, she was talking as I struggled to focus, when this woman walked out of the cafe door, straight up to me and said, “Wow, you are really beautiful.”
I looked at her suspiciously.
She then proceeded with her interrogation:
“How old are you?”
“Are you married?”
“Have you got any kids?”
“Wow, you have beautiful teeth.”
My friend glanced at her watch, said she had to run, and left me sitting there as this other woman continued asking me questions. I alternated between open-mouthed staring and firing back answers.
The woman then spent ten minutes talking about her teeth and her pending trip to the dentist. She actually picked her teeth in front of me, flashed them, and spoke for another ten minutes about how much she spent on braces for her kids, when miraculously…
She said she had to go or she would be late for her appointment!
I sat at the table alone and no longer felt sorry for myself.
I embraced the void, the silence, the emptiness.
And I was definitely truly happy to be alone.
I am the luckiest.
