Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
My Peace Isn't Going Anywhere
However you work that situation out,
You will have to work it out to face your doubts.
To your own satisfaction.
Think of it as a self maintenance.
I am through,
Playing games of tag with you...
At the cost of losing my patience.
Knowing an advice I give,
You think of it as being negative.
And when my patience goes,
So does my peace of mind.
And between you and me...
This peace I have received,
Isn't going anywhere!
Isn't going anywhere.
