In The Arms Of Solitude


I feel at ease with myself,

Free to be who I truly am

Without having to hide

Behind a mask like the herd

Wants me to do out of fear

That I could ruin its stereotypical

Image of the woman of letters.


Meditation (1)


Sitting in lotus position on the meadow of solitude,

I close my eyes and open my heart,

I listen to the sound of my inner voice

As I slowly leave the worldly things behind

And dive deeper within myself.

The soul shines brighter than any celestial body

Allowing me to see things clearer than ever before.

Thoughts, emotions, experiences good and bad

Surround me like the books in the Library of Alexandria

In chronological order ready to be studied when I need them.

Positive energy flows through my body

Clearing my mind of intrusive thoughts

And releasing my soul from the chains of darkness,

Allowing me to finally spread my wings

And soar into the sky with my feathered friends.


Meditation (2)


Little by little I gain in a better understanding of my feelings

Learning to not be ashamed of how I feel.

As I continue to fly, I find solutions to problems

That seemed impossible to solve in the noisy society.

The achievements that were once buried under the rocks

Thrown at me by naysayers are unearthed,

Making me realize how much I accomplished so far

Despite being small and insignificant to others.

After slowly waking up into the outside world again,

I understand how the power of solitude

Provided me the stimulus for looking within myself

And accepting myself for who I am

Without fearing what others think of me.
