Peace

Peace

and just when you thought solitude
is what you need to live and survive
what if, it’s but a mere illusion?

in fact,

there isn’t stillness in seclusion?
there isn’t freedom in liberation?
there isn’t hope in ambition?

‘cos, no matter what you do

the war is in your head
the rage is in your soul
the inferno is in your heart

and, peace is just

a product of your imagination
a manufactured information
a fabricated deception

go, fight

the demon in your head
the evil under your bed
the culprit that said

“you are not good enough and you will never be”

accept the challenge

spring up. climb.
rise up. grow.

prove them all wrong.

unlock your fullest potential.

  11. I don’t know…I feel like I’ve defeated the demon who said I was too much, that said I wasn’t good enough, etc through peace in forgiveness in knowing I’m enough, I have nothing to prove, and embracing my gifts, light, and magic…by refusing to play small or dim my light for anyone else. There’s a sense of peace in loving yourself enough to know your worth and that the comments of others don’t own or rule you…you are free to soar higher than you ever thought possible because you are no longer trying to prove anything and can fully embrace all of your innate light and magic. Now that is truly dynamite! 😊 ❀️

    Sorry for the rant Mich, your poem is beautiful and empowering! πŸ₯°

      Thank you so so.much Jenna for sharing you experience and thoughts…this would help others who are battling their own demons and to those wanting to take control of them selves…self worth is really important..as with that no amount of outside forces can topple your spirit down..and i am so glad to know that you embraced your inner light and magic and i hope others too will learn to.

      Your thoughts are always valuable Jenna no need to apologize..πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
