Poetry challenge #4 ‘Alone’


In silence I concentrate
Until my thoughts dissipate
Making new space for
Working through what I saw

I saw I needed to help myself
To unlock my heart, renew
Tell myself to accept
Being alone is good for you

In silence I concentrate
Keep heart at a steady rate
Making new space for
Things I didn’t know before

I’ve been on a counselling journey which has helped me to use my spare time for learning and improving rather than dwelling on uncomfortable thoughts.

I no longer feel afraid to be alone, and alone time has become an opportunity to grow.

On your journeys through life, may you find a safe, comfortable space within yourselves.

Unchained Inside
