Desperate Search For Peace
Searching for truth in a sea of doubting
Amid the frothy waves of life’s unending trials
I battle fear to maintain confidence
But simple buoyancy evades me still.
Desperately I flounder
As I sink ever deeper beneath the brine.
The shore of wisdom slips ever further
From sight – and panic now grips the mind
All signs have vanished that had meaning
Survival struggles have lost appeal
It’s just “defeat” that now seems real!
Should I really forego the combat
To maintain serenity, faith and pride?
Is it really worth all this turmoil
This endless strain that just won’t yield?
Would it not be so much simpler
To accept the inevitable and make that the “truth”?
