Solitude

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.
