Take Refuge in Loneliness

Take refuge in loneliness
Find solace in moments of wisdom-stricken grief
The blinding embrace of
Love is as
Deceptive as it is warm

See value and necessity in pain
And amusement in times when it wanes
Meaning is assumed and thus is
Lost when blinded by this
Meaning is earned by questioning
Self-meaning is earned by self-questioning

From every great loss
Comes great gain
A wet cheek is as grounding as a
Foot on the ground and an
Eye, brimming with
Wonder, on the sky.

It is too easy to merely
Accept half-hearted meaning
This is why we endure
It is meaning found and
Lost in the search that is tangible
This is why we learn
