I use to sit and wonder what my life will bring
Will it bring joys?
Will it bring love?
Will I one day be happy?
Or will it bring sorrow, pain and suffering?
Will I be alone on my journey?
Or will I be surrounded by many?
These questions have circled my mind as I sat alone in the dark
I began contemplating on the decisions I have made
Wondering if I made the right or wrong choices
I guess it does not matter now
Those moments have gone
The past can not be undone
The present is haunting
My future is uncertain
I have no clue as to what will come
No clue as to how I will handle things, if I can at all
That once made me anxious
My anxiety kicked in and I could not rest
So, it was many sleepless nights
I was left alone with my thoughts
Though my thoughts were not pleasant, they brought me comfort
For my inner voice is the only one I have heard in a long while
No one talks to me
At times it seems they don't even know I exist
I have learned to make peace with my solitude world
I have become my best and only friend
It may seem sad but, I would rather it be this way
People cause too much pain
They lie, manipulate and deceive
I would rather not be a victim of such acts
At least I know that I will never hurt myself
I know I can trust me
So alone I will remain
Shutting the world out
I will remain in my solitude
At peace with my choice
It seems to be the only way
The only way I can be certain I will not be hurt
That I will not fall into the corruption of society and its lies
I am honest with me
I am loyal to myself
I am all I will ever need
I have convinced myself of that much
So let the world unravel around me, outside of these walls
I shall pay no mind
That is not the world for me
My world is right here, in this dark empty place
I shall remain here in my world
Until my dying day
Do not fret, I am truly just fine
No need for your worries
No need for your concerns
Live as you please
Ignore me as you have been
I am content in my world
I am living my dream of peace
Do not think otherwise
Do not compare my life to yours
This is what is right for me
Being completely alone
Alone I shall be
Alone I have always been
Being alone really isn't that bad
It is the best I have been
The best I will ever be
I have eased into my solitude
I have accepted it and all its glory
I have found my peace
The darkness no longer scares me
It is of great comfort now
Not being able to see
Feeling numb as I get lost in nothingness
It is quiet here
Just as I like it
I have never once missed the noise of the outside world
No one but me is welcome here
They have all been locked out
That door shall stay locked up tight
I do not need the extra weight
I am enough on my own
It is what's best for me
So here I shall stay
In my own solitude
While the world continues to turn
My world will be still
Never changing for there is no need
This world I have created is bliss
It is my harmony
I could never hate this
My solitude world
