Happy Place

Happy Place

A Poem by Anne Korhonen

A Christian poem about broken heart in search of peace

I have to move on today
My soul needs a holiday
A spiritual getaway
An emotional runaway
in hope, faith and love to stay
Some joy and peace I pray

I want to return to my happy place
to find the way out of this maze
and from underneath this judgmental gaze
I just must extinguish this hostile blaze
I want to remember the spiritual contentment
Now all I have is sorrow and resentment

I need a break from brokenness
want to forget the existence of illness
and limits and weakness
I need a space near or far
where I can try to be a star
and reach for a greater length
and be measured by my strength
It might be a sanctuary of knowledge and wisdom
or that of heavenly kingdom
or an artistic platform or community
where they care about my individual immunity
where they want the original me
and my roots can grow a tree
My heart and soul can be free
