On My Own

Lea Salonga as Eponine in Les Miserables.

I’m talking to myself and not to him…… but only on my own.


Nothing is certain in this world.
So I decided
To draw a straight line and move ahead.
I said,
One line, just straight ahead
This is my destiny.
As nothing is certain and
Life is full of ironies
I came back again
From a long journey
Of forging ahead
I ran in circles
For that good memories
I left behind.
Where is that start?
Where must it end?
Round and round
Still going
On that jaded line
Out of the beaten paths
I just charted my way
And not my destiny.
The beginning is now the end
And the end of what seemed as a straight line
Begins again, today.

Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout – run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
And MOST of all…
