Peace

Somewhere in the chaos,
let me know Peace
like the eye of a storm:
everything swallowed up
in a vacuum that leaves nothing
but awe. Somewhere in the shouting,
let me know Peace like an ocean:
pounding and roaring, an utter
lack of forgiveness for any grain
that does not succumb to its power.
Somewhere in the fight, let me
know Peace like surrender:
without option or protection
before a greater strength. Somehow,
somewhere in it all, let me know Peace.

on Psalm 85:8
