I Found Peace

Ironically, the "peace" you seek I sought too Only not in a dream This is the reality I choose Here, there are no "daiquiris" Or "dancing" No loveless romancing No more chasing chances Hoping that love enhances In a heart that's bare One that shows  No compassion, No care And especially when it counts Never being there With words of love I never hear My peace has No expectations of tomorrow Waking with sorrows Created by torturous choices Ignorantly ignoring inner intuition, Inner voices My peace won't allow my heart to lead While my mind grieves Or let my body's desires  Make me weak In the search for unattainable love I seek In my reality I'm happy I have found peace... Lay

    Enjoyed reading your work today Lay; it is good to hold onto your hard won understanding of life. But you must not be completly inflexible, give a little At times, but by all means stay independant.. Hope you and the girls ate well. Yours Joe..)

    wow, I hope this is your reality. That is so cool to know one has found REAL peace, and not just the fantasy one that you so aptly make a contrast with in this unique poem!
