Path to peace

I have fought through incredible things Trauma and all kinds of life experiences One may think peace comes to one easy But it doesn’t, as the years I have witnessed Faith kept me going and my fight for survival Staying authentic no matter what the issue is Also what I believe in and standing by truth All this can sound easy, but it is not always so It is faith and the will to make it all happen I have seen treacherous things done to others That hit me deeply, wishing there is not cruelty But there is a lot of it in the world out there Unless we all try to do better still, as we can --- I have fought and I have failed--- --- I have fought and I have succeeded --- Up and down this road traveled in life will be The consistency remains with who I am inside To do the best I can through the journey I have As we are true to ourselves, we are true to others --- I learn the reward is to be earned --- --- From genuine LOVE comes peace --- *Inspired by a comment made by a true talented poet Victor Buhagiar Heidi Sands 7/15/17

How true this is..."As we are true to ourselves, we are true to others." Transparency means vulnerability...that is not always easy. I appreciated this thoughtful write. Blessings.

So perfectly true about us. I think peace is always near, but for me, I have to just stop! everything else for a little while - go into my closet (not literally, of course). I stopped while reading your well versed poem.
