Loneliness is often avoided
Like the plague.

We would do anything
Not to be alone.
Even if it means compromising
Staying with a fool or a drunken dim wit
Or a useless tool.

And yet when life thrust it upon you,
It’s not so bad.

In the peace and quiet, 
You find yourself.

Every piece of you reconnecting,
Giving confidence & love.
Loving yourself,
 the greatest love,
 that you can give.

For loneliness is a path to you.
Not as scary a one imagined.
