Home away from home
I had to create
through cold days
and colder nights
a winter beauty
with flowers gone
somewhere beneath the northern lights
on the streets of Aberdeen
i made peace with my environment
and i called it home.
Ever gaze into the sky and all you see is tranquility,
One that does not exist down below.
Too often, we are overwhelmed by our challenges
But if you could just lift your head and gaze
Look beyond and find this peace I speak of
A peace not of this world
A peace beyond your understanding
Beyond mine too
Don’t let this monday, that job, the battle, whatever struggle eat you up
And maybe, just maybe, you’ll see a Moringa tree, a coconut tree, cables or poles
Or just a beautiful sunset
And a little bit of nothingness.
You can capture it too, steal the moment!
