In Isolation

When the world’s noises are getting louder
It’s deafening and I feel sick – weaker
To be in a crowd is my constant struggle
I can’t breathe and my life seems in a muddle

So leave me alone with my thoughts, my peace
I don’t need anybody else to please
Just bring back my oxygen, let me be
It’s the only way to keep my sanity

I block the noise – all that’s unnecessary
Then welcome silence in solitary
For I find solace in isolation
My happiness is in this seclusion
