Love Yourself the Most when there’s No One Else Around

Solitude and loneliness are two very different settings
Solitude is more a mood without need for want
Loneliness taunts haunts makes you feel you forgot

Each dance
A solo

As beautiful as any Duo

Solitude flows

Loneliness rows
With an extra oar wanting to need more
Struggles on its own

Solitude soars above floors cleaned of memories
Loneliness seeks towers with promises of flowers

Finally a seed

Fit perfectly darkened by soil
Water completely and with company

Design new states of being

Or die before seeing
Loneliness chose the wrong being

Solitude senses false feelings

Protects with all being its senses
Shares with strength its privacy
Lowers its defenses

Allows its manifester to live in total presence

As solitude becomes 2 in 1
Within each other
Solitude invites each other to discover


Solitude and Loneliness are two very different moods

Loneliness will not impress while solitude embraces
What loneliness considers empty of faces

Solitude inhales as scents of clear spaces

Discovers within traces
The dazes days is

Loneliness fears nights
And early morning sights

Solitude in peace trusting in each beat understanding reality is as sweet with the greet of a connected heart stream

In peace until we meet

Loneliness despairs undone for no one cares forgets their one


Loneliness refuses to be bolder
Than its fear of silence

Solitude and Loneliness
One hold

Choose daily which one controls
The words you roll

Your choices follow you home

Find peace in your truth
Or yourself

Always just alone.
