Tranquility - Poem by David Lacey

Know that the calms of tranquility are as a lake
Harmonious and undisturbed, when fate throws
A stir into our embrace we are to suffer the initial
Repercussions, we are to learn to suffer this disturbance
As without it we would be un-able to appreciate our calms.
The rock does the lake no harm, but adds to the length of her story.
Know that even after the chaos has folded ripples untold
Shall stir their own effects upon our souls, yet one day they
Shall be calm once again and we shall know that our dismay
Caused us no harm just as the rock thrown into the depths of our mysteries blue.
We shall know when to awake from the realm of day dream fantasies.
We shall know the mask of true dreaming as a key to reality.
We shall embrace the turbulence of others passions
For only with the construction of a basin can we ever face
The world with a smile upon our face that each race could understand.
This land is grand beyond the measure of our imaginations.
Follow the wanderings of your heart, yet allow reason to guide your
Path. Laugh in the face of the fears that keep you tearful, sleepless through
The nightmare, share your loves, share your cares.
