The world is perpetually changing,
our lives in continuous flux.
Peace dwells in nooks and crannies,
so obscure it’s overlooked.
I searched the whole world over,
for peace throughout the haze.
I discovered its splendid beauty,
when within I turned my gaze.
In myself I found acceptance,
and the world soon followed suit.
The peace I sought was in my heart,
Self-love was all it took.
