SOLITUDE

Darkness folds around you 

Then you’re empty inside

You begin to lose parts of yourself,

But then you’re growing at the same time.

It’s unbalanced.

Solitude creeps in and you think 

Here is where I’m meant to be

On my own, in my own space, with my own mind to focus on

But here

Here is your worst mental state

When darkness begins to fold and you can no longer smile 

Here is where you become empty inside and your parents don’t know what to do with you anymore

Did you depend on them, did they console solitude

Are they the reason why you weren’t alone

Learn to be alone

Or don’t 

Just don’t go back to Here
