I try staying calm

Peace? No, a seething volcano in my soul

An island on my own

No expectations, no claims

Not a deceiver

Nor a Deity

Just a woman of clay

Moulded by life’s vicissitudes at play

Heartened by unexpected kindness

I refuse the gift of anger from anyone

I renew my faith everyday only to have it challenged

Still, I still my heart to heal the wounds,

Of loss so great.

Still I keep the faith of innocent,

Faith that I will make some difference

If I stand against the injustice.

Every day I see innocents crushed beyond humanity

Some killed for causes needlessly

Some claimed back brutally by Mother Nature

I try really very hard to find the meaning

Try to justify all the killing

Trashing of innocence

But still come out empty.

Lone voice mine might be

But they say it will make a difference truly.

So I struggle and paddle along

In the restless sea of humanity

Seething cauldron of discontent

Not knowing a moment's peace

Not knowing joys of contentment.

Cursed already….you still want to curse me more?

I am only human with huge foibles

A woman of passion I am, that’s my claim.
