Poem: You asked me for peace

You asked me for peace.

Your request left me perplexed.

Before asking me,

Have you given yourself peace yet?

You have been seeking peace

for a very long time now and:

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in a bottle.

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in a syringe.

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in impulsive buys.

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in between the legs and thighs of others

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in binge watching movies, series and T.V

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in binge eating all kinds of food

And you hadn’t found it yet.

The last time I checked you were seeking

peace in video games, sports games, all sorts of games.

And you still hadn’t found it yet.

I thought by now, you would know and realize

that the world can’t give you peace.

The world may give you a false sense of peace.

But it’s only fleeting and temporary.

Only Christ can give everlasting Peace.

For he says;

“Peace I leave with you:
my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
John: 14.27
