Peace of mind …
How shall I find my own expectations
in another mind,
find flow and drift in space and time,
and how can I accept another’s pain,
when pain they wear like clothes,
and all I want is love not drama self-imposed?
How do minds meet
when plans are singular and self-serving,
when sharing is just a platitude of placation,
and reality just a machination or ruse;
I have seen the eyes of commitment,
vowing love’s eternal knell,
and then see it ripped from mind,
and life go to hell?
So how do I begin to be,
for someone else’s mind,
to serve two masters and not be free, I think not,
as trust has been lost,
and too many souls manipulate their needs,
when sharing is lopsided indeed?
How do I find selfless people,
who hold ideals of worth,
who wish peace and kindness to mother earth
and all life who abide its gifts;
how can I not be a pariah,
not stay clean from tainted souls,
when the world is harsher than its meant to be,
driven by selfish, greedy ass-holes.
