Need Some 'Alone' Time? That's Okay - "PAEAN TO SOLITUDE", a Poem
Precious "me" Time
Sometimes people just need time alone, and that's all right.
Some days aren’t made for sharing
They’re meant for self alone
These times brook no intrusion
I hold them for my own
I have the need within me
to seek a private space,
somewhere I’m happy by myself
confronted by no human face
Alone--but Not Lonely
My friends all understand me
They’re hurt not by my flight,
but respect my wish for freedom
as my undisputed right
And when indulgent isolation
has once again fulfilled
my need for such seclusion,
and my sense of self has healed
Then I’ll emerge from cloister
and conform once more to life
refreshed from my alone-ness
and equipped to cope with strife.
Enjoying time spent with other people

Humans have five senses: sight; hearing; taste; touch and smell. All contribute to our sensory pleasure. This poem considers the hypothetical dilemma of choosing one sense to give up.
Choosing to remain "uninvolved" when we witness or learn about need or horror is turning our backs on the woes of the world. Apathy is a morally reprehensible stance.
Sometimes you can save money by tracking down the source of a bad smell in your home and trying some DIY methods before you call a plumber. It's worth a try!
