Peace Begins Within

The worst enemy
is the enemy within
When thoughts come
like soldiers
judging the self

And then
it’s a long night
the officer from the past
that hits again
a heart that bleeds
and it’s war inside

Thoughts accumulate
and battle each other
Then it’s also war without

I see
enemies everywhere
and I become very small
expecting to be attacked
anytime

I see
separation
longing that hurts
screaming ‘I miss you’s’

Until I connect with you
through the heart,
connect with love
and find back peace within
to see peace without
