In search of peace

In search of peace short poem

why do you question
something that is understood
why do you question someone
who will not understand
why do you wail
when no one hears you scream
why do you love
when love doesn’t exist
what has become of you
what have you become
why do you look up to others
when they cannot be looked up to
yes it is lonely
and yes you are lonesome
but that is how it has to be
if you desire peace
peace is an elusive whore
it will make you sell everything
you body your soul
till you turn cold and bitter
lie battered and broken
and then it will smile on you
and ask you in stingy silence
why, what for…
don’t you know nothing lasts.

Peace short poem

Peace-inner condition of mind- a quiet flowing river of invisible waves, sea wave of righteousness, money can’t buy. Peace-tranquility upon soul- calmness upon mind and body; those-you love-their home you make a resting place, your haters-upon them are disquiet and

The Search

The Search short poem

Within quadrants.. within transects… they divided the sky, they combed cirrus clouds, squeezed ripe cumulus dry. Within zones… within layers… they divided the sea, they netted frail salps, calculated densities in degrees. Within hypothesis within theories they divided the stars,
