Peace like a river


  • Peace

    Poem Commentary

    "And let the peace of God rule in your heart, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful" Colossians 3:15

    Peace like a river

    The place in which I reside
    must have one thing
    the peace of the Lord inside
    A place where my flesh and my spirit dwell
    outside evil can run wild
    but my place is where I can run and hide
    it is my shelter from all bad weather
    at night my dreams are sweet

    in my place I feel mellow and relaxed
    whether it is a messy or clean
    my place still feels serene
    it feels like there is a river right next to my door
    and the sound of the water
    makes my thoughts run out like a stream
    in my place my ideas are born and start to grow
    then unfold
    cause my house is not a house
    it is the place I call home
