Searching For Calm

Here, I am

living in a storm

Water rushing

This way and that

Water for those

who have a thirst

Here, it is

Drowning others

and me…or so it seems

For those are just dreams

Drops of water

so scarce

and yet, those

complaining

so numerous

to count

Be this way

or choose this path

I often think

Of this thing called

Freedom, so many

fight for the right

to be free

And yet, we

command others

to be just the same

as others

or do the same

as others

How is this freedom?

When we teach our

young ones

Do we teach them

to think and create

or do we teach them

to just follow

and to learn

false histories

false histories are

written by the victors

with no care for

any other

The storm is

engulfing us

all

To give ourselves

love and light

we must hold back

take a moment

Breathe

Learn

Create

Give

Share our thoughts

Share our culture

Share our traditions

Respect others

And Breathe

Calm will come

Welcome! This infinitesimal corner of the web is a place where my fairy tales, poems, and images collect and remind me of where I've been. Enjoy and feel free to comment on your parallel existence! Peter Ellis

Faith is like looking through the viewfinder of a camera; it helps us see differently.
