i found an island in between
the pain and suffering i often feel,
it beckons to me as i desperately swim
against the raging waters of my insanity.
and upon its shores that i’ve reached,
clarity and serenity held me dear.
breathing new life to this tired soul,
that wandered far but has now found a home,
upon the soft, warm sand that cushions me
saving me from the turmoil and torment
that my life has already been steeped in.
