A Peace of Mind

16 May

The woman with the ocean eyes is on the train again today.
She is looking out the window and already sailing away
To a place that holds no judgments, hostility or despair
And it is where hatred, cynicism and greed are rare.
How long will it take us to get to where her ocean eyes drift?
Months, years, decades, centuries…if only someone knew the rift…
There is a quick flicker of hope in her luminous blue-green eyes
Looking for a world that will reduce evil’s enormous size.
She snaps back to reality when a stranger lamely begs for change
Realizing the figment of her imagination will never remain.
The sorrowful beggar thinks twice before asking her again for another dime
When he sees her ocean eyes fade and her face shift into another paradigm.
The hopeful woman tries to scream her hidden message across the vast water and land.
She silently yells for a better place that won’t sink deeply into the grainy sand.
