Reflection In Solitude

By P Chong


AS IN NATURE, in hibernation I seek

For the survival I need

Contrary to what you may think

It’s my way of life’s process accepting.

Upward I turn, silence prevails

Inward I seek, solace avails.

A fortress of solitude we all need

To reflect and a place for retreat

Seclude yourself from all worldly affairs

In true perspective everything becomes fair.
