Thoughts of Peace

I want peace....I want peace within my soul. I am at war within myself. Who am I really, where am I going which direction should I follow, what is right and what is wrong? What is love and how do I give it and obtain it? Am I a man or just a child and if I am a child how do I grow up. How can I gain the trust of those to whom I have lied? How can I mend the wounds of those I have hurt? How can I say I’m sorry and it have true meaning? How do I find you peace, I want the hurt, the pain, the sorrow to all go away never to return. The tears to stop, and my heart to heal. How I ask, how can I be at peace? What is the secret, where is the key, what is the answer? They say you never really experience peace until you've been through some kind of adversity. Well I've been through it time and time again and still no peace has come to my rescue. The peace that smoothes my soul and warms my heart. Where is it I scream inside wanting it needing it? I call upon it yelling out to it, "peace, peace can you see me? I am the one alone in the dark lost within my own sins. Can you hear me? It’s me screaming to you to reach down and pull me up out this pit which seems endless. Can you feel me?  It’s me clawing and scratching at your feet tirelessly, only with the hope that you will only once look down upon me and see my helplessness. It’s me who knows of you but I stand here not knowing you, not knowing of your serenity. Save me, take me into your arm show me what you are I beg of you. Here I stand waiting for you endless wondering when will it be my turn to be at peace. Faith lifts my spirits ensuring me one day you will come to give me what I seek. Faith is my strength, my cornerstone. It preaches of peace and the things it offers. I’m strong in my faith and into it is all my trust knowing that it will never fail me. I long for its knowledge and understanding of peace. I push myself to keep strong in my faith in light of finding peace...
