This is My Peace

There are times when my mind runs a million miles a minute and others when the pace is turtle slow. It’s in these moments that I feel focused and at peace, away from the hurried movements of chaos. My surroundings stone still. I am able to witness the world. A hint of the sun through the darkened clouds reminds me not to let go of hope. During this indefinite period I do not see the walls, the bars, the physical barriers. I do not hear the cries, the screams, the slamming of cell doors, and the chains’ dangle. I feel not the suffering of prison. I am free!

I try my damndest to remain in the now, yet the callousness of reality refuses to let me be. Within my “one” life I wish for the life of many so I can roam, spread my once clipped wings and become. . . With closed eyes I find my escape, discover an exit, indefinite space, boundless heights. The choice to be anything, anyone, and anywhere. I am comforted in being me, delighted in being a part of the struggle. Not prison but this where I belong; center stage, fighting, smiling as I endure the war wounds of history and deliver deathblows to injustice.

This is my peace. Who needs a piece of a pie made American when it tastes all so bittersweet?

Trap me. They may lock me in solitude. I can not be separated from the cause. I have attained harmony in the midst of chaos. Ever so slow, I am one with the world. I am at peace! I am free!
