Who Are You When You're Alone?

Who are you
When you are alone?
Are you the same person
That you are when with others?

Do you step
Into a different world
Where you sing
At the top of your voice?

Or do you sink
Into a "woe-is-me"
Attitude of self-pity
Because you are alone?

Do you indulge yourself?
Do you read?
Do you watch TV?
Do you work on some project?
Do you brood?
Do you pout?
Do you do anything at all?
Do you just sit and blog?

Who are you
When you are alone?
Why are you not the same
Around others?

I have to say that I'm the same, with or without people.

If I had to I could very easly live the rest of my life alone, I enjoy being alone.

Ranando: I'm the same way. I enjoy my family. I enjoy sales -- but to me it's like a puzzle. But I enjoy being by myself. Put me in the middle of nowhere with a half-a-day drive to the nearest town and I'm happy. I think I might have been a mountain man if I'd lived in that era.

I'm pretty much the same, all the time. I enjoy down time, though.
I do projects, I hunt, sometimes I watch TV (though it is unfulfilling), I love to read...and sometimes, I blog.

Me too...I don't change.. I have my time I need to be with people and my time I need to be alone... but I'm fine alone.

I'm never really alone. God sees it all. I screw up about the same amount in public and private.
