Voluntary confinement is a valiant quest
Besides this established pecking digest
A space where nothing can entirely rest
In total absence presides the holy guest
Lacking in presence, but real at its best
Vacuous as it provides the ultimate test.
Voluntary exile from the established way
Is a blessing in disguise, in another way
Freedom is having choices one can take
Not an imposition for some other's sake
But humility, reverence, in deep solitude
Can embrace absence with such attitude.
