Solitude



HERE
  this place
  this world
  is mine

My rules suffice

HERE
  thoughts are protected
  a mind can wonder
  justification wins

The world is mine

HERE
  i'm beautiful
  i'm knowledgeable
  i'm all

Everything to everyone

HERE
  i am okay
  i am safe
  i am free

In my mind

HERE
  the world is mine

Dana

  5. True words--and it's good to stop in a crazy world and make sure you remember that they are true.

  6. And, with kids, we need to find these precious times when we can just have 'me' time. Lovely! And, I'm glad you can and do.
    :) I find it busy enough with one demanding, hyperactive 16 year old...let alone three boys...lol Bravo!

  7. Solitude is one of my favorite things. Must have it every day or I feel a little off. I like your Solitude.
