Solitude

by Mandy Doerr

            
A quiet hand rests on my heart   
Granting much wanted solitude
                                  
It's the only thing I have to myself right now 
                                               
                     I'm always surrounded by people     
                                    
    People wanting my attention    
         People doing their own things     
                                       
               Yet there is always distraction          
                                        
I have nowhere to hide                   
      But in myself   
                            
God                                
Grant me somewhere else to hide    
                        To find peace     
                                To think     
                                    To plan      
                                             
Only then will I have strength               
     To let loose my heart                            
                                                 
                And give it to someone else
