When I turn my gaze from the smudge of this world,
When I close my eyes to its glare,
I see in my soul the most peaceful of sights,
And I stay and rest there.
When I shut my ears to the shrill of this place,
When I block the sounds of its blare,
I hear in my soul the most soothing silence,
And I sit and listen there.
When I stay my tread from the path of this life,
When I keep my feet from its snare,
I find in my soul the most promising course,
And I joyfully follow there.
You really are blessed with the gift of poetry
This is absolutely fantastic .., I feel a certain calm when I read this
I must ask .. How do you come up with poems so great ?
Your words are truly kind and I value them greatly, though I must give credit for any good writing to God, as well as any peace or calm that results of it. I write on inspirations that I find in daily life, or pondering the words that others speak to me, or in moments of stillness as I block the chaos out.
You have just described a true poets soul.
