How to Find a Peace of Mind

Peace of mind …

peace
How?….to find the one

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.

    Wow! The finish…there ya go! You spread such beauty and esteem in all that you speak, and show as a person. I am confident that you will not need to find selfless people in your life, as they will be drawn to you, and you will surely know the difference. You are a beautiful mind and soul, not meant to settle. Take care.

    Best,
    Mel
