Thursday Inspiration — Solitary Man

I’ve always been a bit of a loner
Even as a kid, I preferred to entertain myself
Over playing with friends
I used to invent games
I could play by myself
I thought of myself as an island unto my own
I was alone and wanted it that way
A rock who could feel no emotion
No pain
No joy
No love
No hate
And as I grew older
I became a solitary man
Who enjoys the sound of silence
Right or wrong
Weak or strong
I am what I am
A solitary man
A rock
An island


Written for Paula Light’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the theme is “rock.”
