Seeking Peace or “The Way Out”

Lake Reflection  BW DSC_4650

 

Sometimes, we seek Peace by leaving the building,

Taking time and leaving the everyday,

Separating ourselves from all that is our lives.

Repelling it.

 

Bursting with unending chaos or unfulfilling boredom,

We head for the “way out”…  the exit,

Getting away from all those annoying people,

Even those closest to us.

 

But this cannot be real Peace, the “false” peace of separateness,

All this can do is reveal our path,

Illustrating the fork in the road ahead,

Tasting beauty helps, but the wonder is already present.

 

In our everyday.
