It's Time

I want to wake up
to be a part of everything

I still don't know my neighbors names
I haven't walked an unworn path
in maybe my whole life
I am stuck in my ways
in my solitude

I fall back on it
lie in its comforting embrace
and am grateful to not
hear another person's thoughts
or have them hear mine

but at the same time
I know the sad future this
is leading towards
dying alone
is not the worst thing
but to have never let any one in
past this untouched doorway
is shameful
