remain in peace

there are a thousand forms of disturbance

our minds can create

in the place of upset or emptiness

when our hurting places

are triggered

and yet these reactions

are only thoughts

ways of seeking control and meaning

so often we fall

into the deep fissures opened up

by negative bias

and almost drown

by our own hand

there is a way to be at peace

inside the storm

by choosing silence

while remaining still

at the center of it

there is place where you are loved

even when the world

hates and rejects you

there is a part of your soul

that remains forever untouched by all of pain

so seek that place

when disturbance comes

and know without a doubt

no one else can give it to you

this place of peace

that carries you home

from division and disturbance

to love
