Finding My Peace



I dive down deep

Stillness and quiet envelope me


So quiet

The constant screaming stops

Familiar noises are gone and I sink

Lower and lower into the white silence

Slowly, new sounds

Not noise anymore

Whispers of another world

Conversations uttered from beings that I haven't met, but have known all along

Sounds come a little louder

Beckoning me around corners

Through tunnels

To swim

Deeper and farther

Sounds that don't hurt

Voices that don't sting

Only soft waves that speak

Of places I want to stay


Please stay longer

There is peace here with us-

Too soon, human life shocks me

back to the surface

Noises crash through voices,

Reducing them now,

to startled silence

Eventually yanking me back to surface
