I found My Peace.

 

I found my peace, it's in my place
In all the things I've done
But my heart still hurts
My soul still stings
Whatever I did wrong.

I cried my tears, through the years
With no-one else around
The sting still stung
I was the one
The one they never found.

I tied my shoelaces, tied them well
For the journeys, I have taken
The paths I have stood on
As my mind carried through
The time to awaken.

I sold the Earth but still, I see
My feelings touching Heaven
I ask for help I shout out
But no-one ever hears me
So I pray, Lord, it's Kevin.

I twist and shout out real loud
Love is all around us
Too much love will kill you
With an overdose of pills
When thinking is too much.

I bared it all, but before I died
Death took hold my spirit
And woke me up above
A place filled with pure freedom
And has everything in it.

I grace you all through Autumn fall
Winter turns to dust, the sun shines
Snowflakes fluster thoroughly 
And may all your dreams come true
From now and all for the rest of time.

            Thank you, Laura, for your thoughtful comment. I have found that beauty resides in all things, even in peoples and my own sad times. poetry reveals the honesty which both beauty and sadness resides in, which, in turn, I love writing about it especially when it comes to love. it brings out the most wonderful and marvellous magical inspirations that I can hardly hold my hat on.
