Peace

Here is a poem that I wrote, which was inspired by the famous "Bookmark" of Teresa of Avila and written in the traditional sonnet style.

Peace

Let nothing of this world disturb thy peace.
Or cause thy kindly soul to be distressed.
Cast fears aside, tell clawing thoughts to cease.
From terrors of the mind give thyself rest.
The driving ache and loneliness of heart,
Will melt like mist and sadness fade away.
For from his love none ever shall thee part,
And he will not abandon nor betray.
Defeat and disappointment thou may face.
Yet bitterness shall not thy hope destroy.
For he shall guide thee onward with his grace,
And in his love and through his radiant joy,
Thy shattered soul will mend; its ruins rebuild.
In love divine the empty heart is filled.
