Today’s Poem: Peace

They always say to wait

“One day your peace will come”

It makes us hesitate

To change what’s bothersome

About our days

About our life

About our ways

And so the strife

Keeps pouring in

And piles high

As we begin

To beg the sky

“Come and fix me

I’m right here!

Help me to live

Beyond my fear

Why won’t you show?

This isn’t fair!”

Our spirits low,

Peace isn’t there.

The good news is they’re wrong

It’s not a waiting game

If we cast our glances long

We’ll end up just the same

But if we look inside

We’ll see peace isn’t far

It’s ours if we’ll abide,

Accepting who and where we are.

Peace be with you!
