Solitude (Is Bliss Sweet) - Poem by Weldon Davis

Solitude is bliss sweet
Silence like the kiss
I've missed my whole life

I love the moments to myself
When I get to sit alone, and think
For they are worth more to me
Than any amount of money could ever buy

When I can sit alone, and be 'I'
Not 'we' cause 'we'
Takes from the splendor
Of coming to my own conclusions

Sweet seclusion so sacred
To live my life, and make it my on my own
With no one to moan, and groan
-Or-
Tell me I'm wrong! !
If I'm so wrong why do you need me so?
To mooch, and leech my ideas 
Draining my mind slow

In a heard of idiots
There is no purpose of direction
Only a brave few who chose rejection
Of the normal

Thinking isn't normal anymore
I swear at times it would be more acceptable
My fate...
If I looked at life
From their level of stupidity
Which is so common place these days
Surrender your mind! !
They tell you, and me
To be divine

I laugh at the horror at which this implies
To be numb
To be dumb
To not think
Is their idea of being alive

Never will I give into what they believe
For even if no one does no more
I still love me
I will fight tooth, and nail
Spit teeth, and bleed
Before I let them take
What I hold to be true

My knowledge 
My beliefs
My values
My standards

As I grow, and progress daily
I'm growing to the pinnacles of my desires
Without any regrets or any lies
Take what you will from me
For truly I will never taste defeat
So long as I have my mind
In solitude bliss sweet
