Doing it Alone



I used to worry about going solo

Striding out to places only I wanted to see


Going to the cinema to see a film

Only I wanted to see


Drinking coffee in a coffee shop alone


Sitting on the prom with a portion of chips

With not even a dog for company



Not any more



Tell yourself you're people watching

Tell yourself it's an experiment

Tell yourself anything



Just strike out 

With confidence





Be comfortable in your own skin

In who you are

And who you want to be



In the places you go

And the places you see



Just be you

You will be brilliant at it

  1. Yes it is. Sometimes I just want to be by myself, just people watching or sea watching.

  2. I love to go out walking but my husband always has a dodgy knee, so I just go by myself, sometimes my son will come with me. Nothing stops me. x
