No New Friends

A poem

Being single is not a curse

Nor a life sentence

And neither is being friendless

And alone

.

And I am both

Or at least was

For a while

Quite a long while

.

Though I’m still single, I’m okay with the mingle

Not rushing romantic love, 

Just practicing

Self love

.

Had to turn the dial

The dial of my fate

And slightly change my style

If even a bit,

To show how much 

I was and am truly trying

.

Trying to make some new friends

But I am

Quiet

But I am

A bit shy

But I am

An introvert

.

And even though I am a journalist

Who talks to people everyday

Still there were

No new friends, no new friends 

No no new

.

And it’s been that way

For a while

But I turned the dial

Switched up my style

Met new friends online

That I’m finally meeting offline

In my own town

.

And it’s amazing

New friends, new friends

Finally I’ve made

Some new friends

And we go out 

And we explore and try new things

Together 

.

New friends, new friends

Is this what it’s like to be an adult 

With real friends in real life?

.

Is this what it’s like to 

Finally find what I’ve been missing?

And finally feel like a woman

Rather than a little girl?

New friends new friends

I’m glad I can quit singing

.

No new friends.
