Lonliness is a sense that something is missing;
that peace, hope, happiness,
are outside of my realm.
It is an inner longing for what I have not.
Lonliness focuses on self, need and discontentment.
Lonliness feels abandoned,
powerless, and empty.
It grasps while pushing away.
It cries to be fed;
is continually hungry.
Solitude walks confidently,
trusts in the unseen;
does not fear quiet but embraces each moment
as a gift in time.
that the way to peace reveals itself
only to those who are willing
to unclench the hands
and receive the unknown.
Solitude fears not being alone,
but accepts each in season.
between lonliness and solitude
I created this from the prompt for day 22.
