Seeking Solitude

I’ll often seek out solitude.

Find a place,

with a bit of space,

and only the sounds of nature

to break the silence.

These are times of relative peace,

that border on contentment;

it’s the times when

I’m hemmed in by humanity

that I always feel alone.

You're not the only one.
