To hills I went for peace of mind

Leaving noisy world behind

But biting cold was no comfort

Causing skin to crack and hurt

To caves for stay of calm I went

To meditate, reflect, repent

But past ghosts came to haunt

Disturbing feelings came to taunt

To church and shrine I went and sat

Lighting wicks for this and that

But thoughts raced not settled down

And quietude those voices drown

Then in moment poise and pause

I saw that peace was not outdoors

Wherever I went with me I carried

That peace under waves was buried


O Lord of supreme harmony and poise let me sink down deeply into Thee – that peace that does pass all understanding and that stands firm emanating waves of Thy glory; there to beam and transform.
