True Peace

Not a symbol or a festival
Not a hand sign or a rally
Peace from God
Intimate, holy peace
Stillness within
The quiet of the sunrise
Dying clouds all the colors
Rest inside and quiet
Comfortable quiet
Contentment where
I am without reaching,
Striving to change it
To get more or less
Standing still for a moment
Taking a breath
Acknowledging that
Through the hectic mess
The pulling and tugging
Of responsibilities
Of obligations and wants
Of needs and desires
Acknowledging that
It is well, I am enough
To be still and see
That God has this
The hard and the pain
They’re there
But, the stillness that makes
No sense in this chaotic life
Fills the inside of me
God in me
His peace in me
Transcending everything
Peace, true peace
