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.
