solo

I am doing this wrong.

 

Seeking advice.

Finding peers.

Adding influence.

 

I know this can only be mine.

 

The selfishness.

The honesty.

The Patience.

 

This is not a journey of friends. That will come. It always does.

 

Their praise.

Their disappointment.

Their misery.

Their hope.

 

But for now, I walk alone.

 

Intrepid.

Deliberate.

Solo.
