I Gave Myself Peace

I Gave Myself Peace

A Poem by Belle

A voice from the dark yells out:

‘Serve yourself justice!’

 

But to respond like his way

Is, the same way, murdering my own self;

God did not make me to make my own death,

either to make the death of others.

 

A voice from the dark whispers:

‘Give yourself peace.

 

The bruises encompass my understanding.

The unseen wounds --

they encompass my entirety.

None can ever comfort me

except silence,

 

But to be sheltered by silence, to remain

in pain is not peace.

Peace, I realize, is absence of violence

in the middle of conflict.

 

So, I am giving myself peace

the justice I deserve.
