There’s something truly special about spending time alone
with only the natural world around you;
not your friends, lover or phone.
Others may see you and misunderstand.
May disregard your quiet strength.
But do not fret, fellow silence seeker.
For nobody can weaken the strength of your solitude.
Having time to ponder should only deepen your gratitude
of all that this blessed life is
and all that it can be.
For only after we sharpen our lens alone,
can we have the clarity to truly see.
