Turmoil to peace

I did not know I knew not peace

How would I?

I have always been that way

Trapped

~~~

I did not know how to look within

How would I?

I have always looked out

Unaware

~~~

I did not know how to stop and stand still

How would I?

I have moved what felt like forward

Relentlessly

~~~

I did not know what it was to achieve

How would I?

I have blindly gone on ignoring success

Misguided

~~~

I did not know their impression of me changed

How would I?

I have lived as a that child within trying to please

Only to fail

~~~

I did not know that I lived as a mirror

How would I?

Reflecting an image of who I thought they wanted me to be

Invisible

~~~

I did not know I was not true to myself

How would I?

I have live for so long through the eyes of others

Living a lie

~~~

From the innocents of a child grows a stranger in TURMOIL

_________________________________________

I have learned that I was not who I am

How do I Know?

I had journeyed so far I did not recognize me

Perfidy sorted

~~~

I have learned that to err is to be human

How do I Know?

I have lived in error, accepting this helps ones true self

Evolve with humility

~~~

I have learned that living to a perception is a cruel master

How do I know?

I have lived as an image, it cannot be sustained

Acceptance this was key

~~~

I have learned to love ones imperfect self

How do I know?

To live with the good and the bad leads to

Compassion towards others

~~~

I have learned that when all seams lost it is not

How do I Know?

I have lost all a had, but have found myself

Elusive but emerging

~~~

Strip back creation to find inner PEACE
