When I Rested

When I Rested

With the unquenchable zeal
Of a passionate lover,
I searched both width and breadth
Of my universe.
For a flood of wonder,
A river of love...
Exploring even the dark and bitter shore
Where lies curiosity;
And found not a single drop of peace.

I struggled on, though faint heart
Bid me lie down,
And cast the battle upon the lawn;
In the sun,
On the soft green grass,
To rest and share the light.

Here, I did not find the answer,
The answer was there to see:
I need not struggle to find inner peace;
When I rested,
It found me.

Just some thoughts on the proverbial search for inner peace.
