Seeker

by Relena Dorlian Peacecraft

I seek a peace

an inner serenity

that is just beyond my grasp.

I can feel it so close

yet so far away

as I strive to live

every day.

Maybe if I stop

once in a while

and consider what is there

in my heart

perhaps I will find

this thing

I have searched for

so long.

Was it already there

before I began?

Just waiting for me

to find it?

To unlock its bonds

and set it free

and allow it to heal my soul.

Maybe someday

I can stop

and give that some thought

but for now

I must keep on searching.

Ever running

ever straining

listening for the call-

the world does not wait

for Peace.
