Searching For Peace

I longed for a place, my body to rest
to quiet my troubled mind,
I searched for someone to share my thoughts
a face that seemed patient and kind.

Through shopping centre and city park
I roamed, but all in vain;
everyone hustled and bustled by
unaware of my pain.

I searched for a church, to sit quietly
hoped for a peaceful retreat,
but every church was locked up tight
like the people in the street.

    No, I only depend on the Prince of Peace. His kids haven’t all learned what He meant by peace quite yet. 😉
