Finding Peace

In the time of flower power,
maryjane’s smoky eyes led me in a trance,
to an acid world,
 colored in a purple haze,
and so psychedelic feet
 danced across my mind’s floor.

Lost and confused about it all
when a call to arms held me captive
in the war that wasn’t
and a cause now forgotten.
Shelled into fright
 and not sure of a one God,
on two I did lean.

When a government issue no more,
all was safe and sound
I thought, which god did hear?
One fought to keep me in the dark
 of a black heart
  with questions
 and twisted answers
 about the whys and whats of life.

So I struggled to see the light
and make sense of it all
 through bloodshot eyes
 of a messed up life.

But the true One heard my plea 
 and mercifully drew near
when a face glowing with peace
opened my heart to truth's
 bright light
 to rescue me from dark despair.
