Taking Notes – Written Thursday 28th July 2016 (Aged 41)

Taking Notes

i never saw peace in my eyes
i look at others,
making their way,
i never saw peace in my eyes
just here, afloat,
looking around, taking notes
speaking up, speaking out
a life lived through rescued quotes
building castles,
but never the moats
i never see peace in my eyes
just fires
how did they plough on
when the soil was so tough
when the field looked empty
when the crops were never enough
i just wish…
because i never saw peace in my eyes
just some hungry love,
and the swell of longing tides
the ones that eagerly find my shore
make me better, forever more
