“MY INNER PEACE”

 
 
When I was just a carefree little girl
and life unkind as it began to unfurl
 
I knew where I could become whole
by grabbing my bamboo fishing pole
 
I would sit on Grandpa’s rickety dock
rediscover my inner peace—tick-tock  
 
Now that I’m all grown up—I ponder
life when it seized countless wonder
 
No matter adversity that ensnares me
my inner self knows just where to flee
 
I grab my bamboo fishing pole—tick tock
while I sit down on Grandpa’s rickety dock
 
Once again, I’ll find inner peace down to my very soul
savor the serenity while the little girl in me becomes whole
