Awaiting Peace

from by Manny Goossen



I had woken and sprang to
An unfamiliar, strange room
Please be near me, I'm troubled
But how am I to be blamed here?

Most is temporary
To work and play, and marry
Every night I dream alone
All these years and I still withhold

And so on and so forth it goes
I'm on the narrow road

Awaiting peace
Peace of mind, all my life

How's the water, is it safe below?
From above, you wave and howl alone
Takes a second but it's nice and slow
Now I'm in, I've found it black and cold

I try to be patient
I swim upstream with my mental woes I wade in
I've been told it's not worth it
Believe it or not it's a burden
Can we find a solution
These dark waves of colour
Are clouding my vision

Standing on the other side
Of where I desire to be

This heart of mine
This heart, it beams on the outside

But this lack of peace of mind
Casts a shadow on the inside

How am I to know?
Is it worth all the struggle?

Living on that edge
I may slip and fall, I'm only human

I'll keep my baggage light
Won't you meet me on the other side
(Awaiting peace)
Meet me on the other side
