Overcoming Lonely: Romantic ImproVerse Free Verse Lament

March 24, 2013

instead of bemoaning
the fact
she won’t call,
I should prepare myself
for someone who will
reach out.

instead of worrying
why I’m not
good enough,
I should make myself
for someone who is
not only awesome,
but who believes
that I am

Because even though
I am,
I can be
more so.

And when I am
at THAT level,
it won’t matter
what I was
will it matter
how lonely I felt.

And as God is my witness,
I will never be lonely again!
