Search For Peace

Hi, everyone! I'm back once more with a poem that I wrote last Friday and thought you might like. If any of you were wondering what happened to The Lay of Lucius, I will be posting the first part on Thursday. Anyway, my poem:


Voices whirl around me,
A maelstrom of sound and confusion.
I struggle to block them out,
To find a quiet spot,
To be along with my thoughts,
To find peace.
My world is disrupted,
No peace can be found,
No time to spare.
I search for peace.
I search and cannot find it.
Where is peace to be found?
Even when I am alone
I hear voices.
Voices of fear and worry,
Whispers of what must be done,
Of what I have not done,
What I wish to do,
And what I cannot do.
I try not to listen,
But they overwhelm me,
Drowning me in a whirlpool of business.
Finally,
Desperately,
I pray,
Giving my worries to God.
For peace comes only from the Lord,
Only He can give us what we seek.


What do you think? I'd love to know! Thanks for stopping by!
-Sarah
