I Found Peace

The night was long and restless, 
So I watched the sun come up, 

As I sat, watched, and listened, 
The trees whispered sweet nothing in my ears, 
While the birds played me an undiscovered melody, 

And in this moment of nirvana, 
I realized a key element of my life, 
In this corrupt world of miscommunication and misguidance, 

THERE IS STILL PEACE, 

Not through sex, drugs, or music, 
But through the eyes of a child, 
The warmth of a loved one, 
The look of happiness and excitement on a strangers face, 
And YES the silence in the early morning dew misting the grass, 

As I stared in at the beauty not yet defined by another, 

PEACE, 

And So as I sat watching the trees sway back and forth bringing life into this 
death bound world, 
I sat… 
Listened… 
And Felt something that I thought could only be felt in a dream, 
I felt Peace
