I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Seeking peace is a poem about searching for a place where she can relax. A place where she can clear her thoughts. She attempts a patio full of strangers and retreats to her new place behind four walls but it is not the same. She yearns to be outside in the fresh air, where she can see beauty.
"How To Find Peace Of Mind" by Explore Buddhism
With no where to retreat,
she hides in the far corner
of a patio,
surrounded by strangers
hoping no one will notice her.
Desperately trying to find a peaceful existence,
where she can breathe in fresh air
like she once did
at a dwelling no longer hers.
To clear those negative thoughts
roaming through her head,
while she lies in bed
behind four walls
with no light.
She needs to feel
the fresh air upon her face,
to remind her she is still alive,
to push herself towards another moment,
finding the beauty in life.
