I Want

I don’t want
To talk about bad things to come
Not about people
Who have succumb to treacherous lives
No weeping
Wailing can disguise.

No, I want
To talk about how my heart soars
My voice roars the beauty of things
And the gentle kindness
A good heart brings.

These are the things
I want to hold
These are the things
I want to be told.

Seeking Solitude

Seeking solitude, quiet and a resting mind
No bitterness, no crime
No tears smearing a saddened face
Only a smile, a happy thought
A loving gesture
All things caring in this
A quiet time.

That’s what I want, I need
In this
My quiet mind.
