Poem: Seeking Peace

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

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.

Seeking Peace

With no where to retreat,
she hides in the far corner
of a patio,
surrounded by strangers
hoping no one will notice.

Desperately trying to find a peaceful existence,
where she can breathe fresh air
like she did before
at a dwelling no longer her home.

To clear negative thoughts
roaming through her head,
while she lies in bed
behind four walls
with no light.

She needs to feel
the air upon her face,
to remind her she's still alive,
to push herself towards another moment,
to find the beauty in life.


Peace is always beautiful.

— Walt Whitman
