Solitary Man

You build walls around

yourself to hide away

afraid to let others in

through fear of

what they might say.

The longer it has gone on

the lonelier you have become,

until you can’t remember

what it is your hiding from.

The dreams you once had

have faded into the distance

along with the memories

of the time that you

should have listened.

A solitary man who will

never attain happiness

all because he was ashamed

to show his own weakness.
