Solitude, my friend,
Our friendship has stood the test of time
For who do we have in this world
But we ourselves?
We can always be who we want to be
And change ourselves accordingly
But when we set about to change another
That’s when things fall apart
It is you, solitude, my dear friend
Who has revealed this truth to me
And taught me to be my own best friend
Rather than worst enemy.
