Peace Within

Peace Within

The waters swift within this place,
Swift as ocean currents break,
Waters racing from mountains above
Filling her shores with icy sludge:

Waters so black, yet white as snow,
A force so strong one cannot ignore.
Tearing trees from life and limb,
Changing the environment upon a whim.

And in this place, you sit so strong
As peace embellishes your granite walls.
A scene serene in which you make,
No movement do you create.

You sit strong as your neighbors fall.
You embrace the waters that climb your wall.
You stand fast for all to see;
You’re the peace within this glorious scene.
