The world is dark, dangerous,
it can be confusing.
The trees begin to look alike,
but they’re not.
You can’t figure which way to turn
as the vines fall down; trapped.
So cover yourself in a film of beauty.
Protect yourself in the satin of peace.
The world will say “you’re in a bubble”,
but it’s more than that. In a place
where darkness lights the way,
you have found solitude.
