Seeking Tranquility

© 2018. All Rights Reserved.

 

I am home, goal achieved
I tear and toss and laugh
With little prompting.

I am lost in waves of emotions –
Tossed in a violent torrent
From dark despair to grateful joy.

Both drive tears to my eyes
While the voices say it is okay
To be expected, natural.

So I toss and ask forgiveness
My desire for simplicity,
Placidity
Calm.

Forgive my impatience –
My lack of anchor as passions suffocate
Efforts to breathe, to find my peace.
