Inner Peace

Dig a hole in the ground Keep digging deep down So the echo won’t slip because your goal is to scream, Scream loud to ease the pain inside The dirt on your hands is the sin That you have been carrying around Somehow you kept holding on now freedom is what you seek Fading memories is your dream But what happens after you scream? Yes,you feel a bit at peace Yet the feeling you get makes you bitter and sweet. You have been carrying this weight on your feet feeling the heat, Blood flowing through your veins; Love turned into hate and trust into fear So after all are you really at PEACE? Days later, you go on with your everyday life, growing weary and cold Then the battle with your mind begins Because digging is no longer your escape Your own fear has captured you in a cage So you write it down on paper, Not in pencil but in pen Because there are no mistakes That can be erased (erasing parts in your life) What’s done is done And your shame cannot be wiped away Once again you fight in the flesh, all you want is peace And a resting place Yet you seek no one but yourself.
