I’m at Peace

images (6)

I said I couldn’t do this anymore,

But everyone seemed to have a better opinion of my life, of the capacity of my strength,

But they have no idea of the courage I’ve had to put up through these smiles.

I begged that he would stop hitting me,

But everyone seemed to be so sure I must be doing something to provoke him,

But they have no idea what the pain and aches feel like at the end of the day.

Hold on a little longer, they said

The journey ahead isn’t as much as what’s left behind,

But only I know the peace I’ve craved and had to battle within.


Now I’m at peace

All the noise and distractions don’t matter anymore

. . . Because I’m dead.
