Peace Be Still
By Testy Paschal Gozie
I threw my heart but I watch as it rolls
On the ground
And I felt the sound.
Maybe the timing was so wrong
Or maybe not good enough.
Everything I am avoiding happening before my very eyes.
But nothing can hurt my eyes
That has no more tears to shed.
You can not kill something
That is already dead.
I see it with the pictures painted–
And writings were written on the wall.
The fire burning bright,
It’s like I’m climbing just to fall.
Is it an illusion or is it all in my head
I don’t know; I’m misunderstood —
And it doesn’t matter what I said.
I know how everything makes me feel
but an inner voice inside of me says, “Peace be still…”
