Someday - Poem by Katharine Byrd

When the lilies have wilted
And the violets are gone
I will stand naked in my garden
And weep for the lost sensations.
When my heart has faded
And my spirit is forlorn
I will bend to my knees
And pray for repentance.
One day
I will walk indifferently down the streets
Not caring for the stalkers and murderers who pass me by
And carry in my hands
A fathomless inner peace.
I walked down the aisle of the local bookstore
And smiled as a shoplifter
Walked swiftly by.
