This is my first Poetry post. I decided to write on Inner Peace because it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve experienced and if you haven’t experienced it, I hope you do after this.

I have this bad, bad habit of mine,
One that I’ve held on to for years.
It makes me sad, leaves me crying
Leaves me swimming in my tears.

I have this wrong, wrong habit of mine,
And it’s called ISOLATION.
I keep telling myself that I’m fine,
In reality it’s pure deception.

But then it came, it came to me,
Rushing in like a mighty wind,
Pain and sorrow, I could no longer see,
All the hurt instantly killed.

I finally could accept myself
And from the burden, freed.
I no longer needed their help,
I didn’t need them to accept me.

You must learn a new way to think
Before you master a new way to be.
Don’t be distracted by fear or anxiety,
Focus your mind on PEACE.

Why stress yourself over them-
The things you cannot change?
Let today be the day you learn
That peace is indeed not strange.

When you finally stop struggling,
You will definitely float.
Release what brings you suffering,
Cause you’re hurting your heart and soul.

“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”

Remember, You can’t be at peace without God, so let him in.

    I like this paragraph

    You must learn a new way to think
    Before you master a new way to be.
    Don’t be distracted by fear or anxiety,
    Focus your mind on PEACE.

    Nice piece on PEACE (pun intended)
