Poetry: Be At Peace

Underneath the stress of a new day a new life

Free and floating higher on inner strife

My chest hurts a bit and my breath catches

And under all the stress the pattern matches

I can’t come last running my own race

Peace of mind and guarding my embrace

Even though I can feel when someone doesn’t care

I don’t get why some people have no love to spare

How can you take and take and give back so little

To someone who loved you how can you settle

Your conscience I’d find it so hard but then again

I’m strange because out there I live and die in pain

Of one sort to avoid the absolute shattering

Of another my heart can take such a battering

In service of that one goal we all admire

To be at peace I know what I require
