I’m from a place of silence and solitude
silence like covered ears.
A place of expansive serenity.
A place of deafening nothingness
that drowns out the conflicts.
A place devoid of conversation
and collaboration with peers.
A place where I remained content
without social interaction.
I’m from a place of artificial beauty
that entertains the silent mind.
An interactive theater.
A place of pixel, science, and screen.
A place of ping, patch notes, and packet loss.
A place of potential
in software and programs.
A place that gleams bright
from LED lights and IPS screens.
A place materialized by nothing more than ones and zeroes.
A place of “Get off the computer.”
and “I’m almost done with this game.”
I’m from a place that’s not empty.
Where once was serenity is sound.
A sound of caring companions and loving family.
A place where resides those
that stood out from the rest.
Individuals who came to this place
when they saw that I was alone
in a place of silence and solitude.
