Dance with yourself at 11pm on a Tuesday night / that is how you find comfortability in your own shadows. They are your friends, not monsters- not anymore. Sing yourself a song, watch a plant grow, don't meditate in old poems you wrote in grade ten. It's been 5 years since then. Your emotions are challenged, more obscure and wiser now. A scientist doesn't check the properties of a medicine already created. He searches anew, for a deeper understanding, for a different source of discovery. Don't tiptoe around who you are, drink your coffee slow and make your conversations last longer. Don't be quick to dispose of people especially the ones who care. In the end, the sense of loneliness is only as strong as the mind makes it.
