Peace Within

Turmoil surrounds us;
sadness and despair
coiling their way
around and around
looking for a way through.

Our soul reaches out,
shining bright
to dispel the darkness;
leaving a doorway
for hope to enter in.

Still, the darkness battles,
ever trying to drag us down;
ever looking for a way
to pull us out of ourselves,
hiding joy from our view.

But Spirit gently calls us,
embracing us in His love;
wrapping us in warmth
and surrounding us in light,
and then, we find it,
we find the peace within.
