Solitude Must Seek Its Own Repair

Solitude must seek its own repair,
Relying not on others to find right,
Trusting but to God, to self, to prayer.

Though counsel has its place to help prepare
For journeys taken to advance our sight,
Solitude must seek its own repair

If it is to escape from others' glare
And find its own true, perfect shaft of light,
Trusting but to God, to self, to prayer.

Confusion borne of conflict and compare
Might rob the staunchest seekers of their might:
Solitude must seek its own repair.

When striving to touch truth, best to take care,
Avoiding those who paint in black and white,
Trusting but to God, to self, to prayer.

Though lonely time can reek of dark despair,
Only unencumbered thoughts take flight;
Solitude must seek its own repair
Trusting but to God, to self, to prayer.
