A time in solitude

There is a certain solace when I surrender to solitude,
sometimes spending time alone can cure a somber attitude.
Not to sulk in self sorrow, succumb to cynicism or wallow in
senseless sadness that leaves one hollow but rather follow
after serene sentiment, supplicating my savior is my crisis management.
Thoughts of suicide subside when I allow Christís sayings to reside
within my minds eyes. I will celebrate my successes and sympathize with
the sufferings that surround me . Soothing sights and sounds of nature lifts me to be free
. Grieving has its place, tasting tears off our face should not be considered a disgrace or shameful, life is often painful and crying is a gift in which we ought to be thankful.

God is Not Against You - He Came on an All Out Rescue Mission to Save You


...in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them... 2 Cor 5:19

Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Acts 13:38

This is close to a stream of consciousness style - very effective for contemplative poetry. Solitude is both a retreating and an exploring. Retreating from the world and exploring your inward self. It is kin to meditation. A needed discipline for Christians. The mature attitude would be to embrace these times as precious gifts with which to draw closer to God. Well said.

Solitude... definitely something to be thankful for... though there was a time when I didn't understand the necessity and the very idea of being alone was terrifying. But there's good reason the prophets of old chose to be cavedwellers. Nothing quite like solitude for the healing of heart and soul.
