Solo Act

It's what I do best,
doing whatever it is,

Not having to worry about
interfering with other people.
No one needs to go out of their
way for me.

Yet I seem to have people
ask, "why?".
I ask, "why not?"

Some ask me why do I not
offer others,
invite them to what I do.

The sad truth is,
I do.

I am cancelled on,
blatantly ignored,
given every excuse

Then I end up doing what 
I planned to do,

Why must I create heartache
when none is needed?

Why must I get hopes up
of people wanting to spend 
time with me?

Why should I ask people
when all I get is a "No....."?"

Why spend one more second 
thinking about the countless
number of rejections I receive?

Maybe this is why I prefer
my solo act.
