Seeking Solitude

Solitude is my preferred mode
but nobody is ever really alone

We are completely interdependent
for I cannot build my home alone
nor can I grow all my groceries

Often in company loneliness can overwhelm
whilst solitude is raw awareness
it’s knowing that I am responsible for everything
I think do and say

That whatever arises in life
I must find the way

Others can support and care
but ultimately it is my choice

Switch off all devices,
for time alone gives an opportunity to reflect
on life’s goals and how to achieve fulfilment!
