So simple yet so profound

For millennia many have been in search of it

The calm in the midst of storm

Where the strains and the pressures cannot bend or break

I have found

Discovered that peace is a journey

Not a destination

The never-ending twists and turns of this present existence dares us to decide

Decide whether to be consumed by the storm

Rendering our pathways useless

Confusing our journey

Delaying our progress

Or instead to meditate in the storm

Elevating our spirits to a yet unseen place

A place so far beyond the clouds that the storm in it-self is a myth

Where the clouds of nine have no understanding

Where they are the basement to this yet unseen tower of victory

It’s a place I’m constantly searching for

Not within this earth

Not away from the confines of pain, sadness and despair

I search within it

When the spirit is so weakened

So strained by the things of this earth

Yet doesn’t break

When in the turbulent lands of the soul,

There are still-waters

Where in the darkest of souls,

Sunshine, light and laughter exist.

I employ you

Find peace in your storms

Look for stillness in your turbulent times

For with these actions and in these places

May rest your freedom.
