    Tonight
    I lay in my bed
    My window up a little
    To usher in the winter breeze
    I can hear the traffic
    Breaking the calm of the night
    And in a moment peace
    I’m content
    If just for a moment
    Than that moment is gone
    Never to return
    And I think of how the sad
    Sentences of my life
    Are sprinkled with dots of
    Happiness
    from time to time
    And I cry

    Inside my chambers
    i lay in my slumber
    upon da darkness
    each corner is my story
    until you come center
    is where my sadness lay
    broken and pitted away
    i slump over in tears

    it's not as bad as we think

    it could have been worse

    but somehow it wasn't so bad afterall

    and now we appreciate where we are

    somehow we are here

    in the now

    and that's not so bad

    peace poet
