    Better off in solitude cause I like to be alone.
    Better off in solitude were I don't have to be...
    Vulnerable
    Sensitive
    Weak
    Boring
    Weird
    Shy
    And Judged.
    Better off in solitude where I don't have to hide who I am.
    Who Am I?
    I'm better off in solitude where there is no chance of me being hurt
    So I was better off in solitude, when I never knew you
    Which means I never loved you
    And I'll never miss you, cause it hurts to much
    Better off in solitude, cause honestly I feel I have to worth.
    Better off in solitude where I never knew your voice, and I never thought there could be a you and me.
    I was better off in solitude where no one knows me, to forget me.
    Better off in solitude cause no one cares to know me
    No one cares to know my feelings
    No one cares to know my thoughts
    No one cares to know my emotions
    I'm better off in solitude cause I'm afraid to be judged
    scared to open up
    Better off in solitude cause...it's safe
    And I'm afraid
    Afraid to open up
    Afraid to share who I am with the world
    Afraid of being judged.
    Afraid of failure
    Afraid to try
    Better off in solitude cause it's safe
    No pain
    No friends
    No love
    No life
    No judgement
    No Sound
    It's just me and my expression. ​

    In solitude we don't get to experience anyone else's joy, but neither can they hurt us, and that seems to be the greater good. I've sat in this space before, and you expressed it oh so well!

    if you can do bad

    you can do bad all by yourself

    nothing like finding solitude

    but it's nice when it can be buffered by family and friends that care about

    and you can talk to them
