Lessons From a Hermit (Poem)

Updated: Feb 8

A young man sitting in a lonely place.


People may come and go, Whether or not they value you. Do not underestimate your worth, Or you'll disappoint yourself, too.


In solitude you should confide, It will never set you aside. Accept it regardless of day, You're not an obstacle in her way. Life is full of frustrations, Unless you only have small voids in you. Without these voids, problems are less mentionable, And giving more you'll be able. (Giving more, you'll be able).

A narcissist is greatly starving, For a void they fail to fulfill. No matter how many followers they get, They can still remain displeased.


In solitude you should confide, It will never set you aside. Accept it regardless of day, You're not an obstacle in her way.

Life is full of frustrations, Unless you only have small voids in you. Without these voids, problems are less mentionable, And giving more you'll be able. (Giving more, you'll be able).


Stress can be greatly caused, By things outside your control. Detach your worth from them and you'll be whole, And you can still fulfill your call.


In solitude you should confide, It will never set you aside. Accept it regardless of day, You're not an obstacle in her way. Life is full of frustrations,

Unless you only have small voids in you. Without these voids, problems are less mentionable, And giving more you'll be able. (Giving more, you'll be able For others you'll be able, For others, be more able).
