Solitude (a Daily Prompt)

To be or not to be….alone

We all need our space

Sometimes alone is what we crave, no

It’s what we need, a respite from it all

At times our world spins too fast

We need to get off the speeding train

Sometimes we lead that train, at others we drag behind

To keep our health, learn the difference

Know when to jump

Solitude, quiet, time to think

Be with just yourself

Come to like being with just you

Appreciate your time with others after time alone

Then begin anew

Be ready for companionship, camaraderie,

and togetherness

once again
