Isolation allows me

To place myself at the highest peak,

Cleansing my thought palate

With the most calming wind.

 

Isolation allows me

To look at life and find new meaning

Garnering appreciation for that which

I already have – not yet lost,

Finding peace, stemmed from the cradle

Of my rich imagination.

I often Isolate myself to regain focus(especially after a rough encounter). People usually question me on why I do this instead of relying or asking for their help. I don’t know why, but it’s saying things like that which deters me even more; perhaps I don’t react well when the help I’m being offered is teetering on force-feeding. I’m man enough to admit I need help when I do indeed need it; however, I never accept that as my only option when a new ordeal comes my way.

Is it selfish of me?
