Most of us want to be in peace, at ease,
and there are several ways for this to be,
Comfort without perspective- that's luxury,
Taking a moment, not facing reality,
Can be easy with joy, love and family,
A place in time where we can be free,
Only seeing what we want to see.
Satisfaction from labor- that's achievement,
End of the day after however long spent,
Feeling secure with cash for food and rent,
Relaxed at home, glad that the time went,
Reflecting at the days' end.
Desire in consumption- that's emptiness inside,
A hole with a hunger that won't subside,
From food, alcohol, drugs, shame or pride,
With a big appetite and smile wide,
Being full comes when you put your plate aside.
Paradise while in love- that's temporary,
True love is resilient against a world so scary,
Falling in love is easy so be sure to be wary,
In honeymoon phase you can't comprehend a ride so hairy.
The different ways of finding a sense of peace
