»Finding Peace«

by Dorinka Nel, June 25, 2018

Where will I find peace...
When everything within me is chaos
When I cannot see how will survive the next day
When nights are cold and lonely
Where will I find peace?

I go to the mountains and beg
To the ocean to politely ask
To the desert to show my perseverance
Even the lust tropical forests were laughing at my request.

Maybe I will find peace in love
For a soulmate or maybe children
Maybe if I can stay in a mansion and drive the latest supercar.

But no...
Peace is found in admiring the small things in life
The birds and the bees
The flowers and the trees!!

The mind could never imagine / How much the heart could love / When soul meets soul and find in them their soulmate / That feeling that cannot be described in a book, / or written in scientific terms... / For it is only written on the hearts of lovers and / only they will know the chemistry thereof.  sign in to read more »
