A Late-Winter Day (in 2015)

I lost a piece of my soul today.

I lost it.

And I think that only peace

Might help me find it.


But where do I find peace?

Probably not among

The crumbled ruins

Of shortsightedness.

And probably not in the aftermath

Of those who outright refused

To look and see.

But I will find it.

I will find peace.

It’s a combination

Of remembering love

And figuring out

What I truly believe.

It’s a great and mighty thing, you know,

That I am in charge

Of my own reality.

It will harbor the hope

That will guide my mind

To where my lost piece of soul 

Might be.
