what you find

WHAT YOU FIND

I hope you find
what you are looking for
behind the curtain,
tinted glass,
behind the slightly
opened door.

I hope it leaves you
satisfied.
I hope it leaves you
filled.
I hope you find
the taste sublime,
and rough waters
stilled.

I hope you find a
sweetness
and a freedom in
release.
I hope it gives you
comfort,
I hope it gives you
peace.

And when you find
you are all alone,
I hope the things
that you looked for
do not chill you
to the bone.

QUESTIONS

QUESTIONS

What is the price of Peace?
Does one sell one’s soul
to find gentle release?
Does one dig a whole,
see the violence increase?
What is the price of peace?

What does approval cost?
Will pride be needed,
so it can be tossed?
Will pain be seeded
and then never be lost?
What does approval cost?

Can Love ever be found?
I’ve heard rumors, true,
from those whose mind is sound.
But there are those who
say it’s never around.
Can Love ever be found?

What’s the value of Life?
If peace has a price
in the middle of strife,
And Love is a vice
to approve after life,
what is the value of Life?
