Peaceful Solitude

I am alone and yet I am not alone
I am not surrounded by others
I am not engrossed in conversation
And yet I do not panic although I am by myself
I am my own company
I find refuge in myself

Here presents a moment of acceptance coupled with relief
A moment of self reflection
A moment of thoughts only privy to me
After all, if I am not comfortable being around me

How can I expect others to be?
I relish these moments; these moments of peaceful solitude
Where I can find true understanding
My true definition coming forth and becoming clearer
Without other’s involvement or input

Solo, as I was at birth
Minus the nervousness & uncertainties
Just I, basking in the familiarity of one; myself
And never before have the number seem so enticing and safe
