The Search For Peace

This poem is dedicated to my friend, Nelly, in gratitude for her assistance with the Marathon for the Mint fundraising campaign.

I’ve searched long enough
To know where peace lives
For God only knows
What a trip it’s been!

You won’t find it there
Outside of yourself
In far-off lands, and
Mythical places

No matter how much
You are surrounded
With money and fame
The struggle remains

Now here’s my secret:
It’s simple and true
Go within, sunshine
The answer burns bright!
