My Peace Isn't Going Anywhere


However you work that situation out,
You will have to work it out to face your doubts.
And,
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!

REPEAT!

My peace,
Isn't going anywhere.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
