Almost peace

Almost peace.


In this place

where my heart stills

my breathing slows

and I soak up the sights

and smells

and sounds

of the Lakeland evening sun.

Yet even here

my mind still speaks over itself

as the voices argue and confuse;

an ever exhausting cacophony.

At least here the noise inside is muted


knowing I’m in the space

that helps me feel free




So in this peaceful place

I almost find that peace


One day I know

the voices will stop

and I will be still

in every possible way

and finally

at peace.
