aloneness is the answer


Leaves me not in grief

Rather, as my paramour,
leads me on.
To see the world
with no complications
without a worry or care,
without strings attached or obligations.
I yearn not for company, but for solitude
Life’s mysteries are better understood,
Contemplation, a way of life
And when there are no other footsteps
but my own to follow, on the vast shores of time
I’ll have come a full circle from where I began.
When I look back I’ll see,
I’ve lived my life for my own.
Generosity for myself.
No hurt for others.
Isn’t that a thought?

I so agree with the very thought of being alone and just be with one's own heatbeats and own soul...
loneliness is so serene plus revives us...
with a kid by my side, i do know what being alone and peacefulness means...

i really think that each one of us need THAT SPECIAL MOMENT for reviving....

I am glad you agree...although i do admit it is slightly romanticised. At times though, it sure does wonders for the soul...thank you for your comments
