At the minds end

At the minds end

A Poem by Kimberly "Melody" Carney

 

winter northern lights

We all have seen better days

 

Some pretty bad ones as well.

 

I know I have.

 

I run into people all the time

 

Who always feel

 

They will never be happy

 

Due to one reason or another

 

Do we even know what happiness is?

 

Can one person define for me?

 

Without using a biblical quote

 

What love?

 

Joy

 

Freedom

 

Or happiness is to them?

 

Nine out of ten times

 

Expressions to describe them overlap

 

 

 

We all look so much to our surroundings

 

To find contentment

 

It’s not there to be found!

 

It's something you

 

And you alone must find

 

From within yourself

 

Truly experience that

 

That which is surrounding you

 

Learning to filter out the bad

 

Yet learn from it

 

Cherish the good

 

Yet learn you must keep moving forward

 

Learn how it is possible to be happy

 

To be peaceful in the midst of a chaotic world

 

Peace is found at the minds end

This poem carries a lot of truth.

It reminds me of the lyrics of some Reggae
singer who's called Peter Tosh from Bob Marley and the Wailers

it goes like: ' I guess what they want is some peace of mind......
you can't borrow it from a friend
So mine got to come from within. '

WELL DONE !!!

Powerful and intuitive message you describe here, and every word of it is so true. The empathy for people so stuck in the worrisome coils of their own minds, expecting the unexpectable, it's sweetly philosophical and almost tender. Also, very well written, wonderful message you've expressed. I really enjoyed reading this.

You said it well- things outside ourselves can bring pleasure, but not joy and peace. nice job.

Possessives need apostrophes. But you already know that. "Mind's". I just had to reread this. It's that good. Sorry I didn't catch that before. Unless it's a plural form.

This poem is a reminder of all of the stories of those who had life changing epiphanies that came from walking alone. This deep philosophical work was a joy to read. It is art as well as practical advice which saves lives. Beautiful.

A great poem about the real meaning and true about life. You gotta push your bonderies, you gotta try hard, and if you faield, ast least you have a scar to learn from. Such great write here

Happiness lays within your deepest core. It's for some hard to find it, when it's lost, but if you have it or have found it back, a true bliss. Very beautiful words here, and something to think about. Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed.

It is all within, though often I find no end to the mind, so I let the heart decide where and when to rest, and call it the end.

It's very relatable. It's got a great feel to it, nice pace, meter varies, but consistently good. Nice!
