Making Peace with my Soul. {Poem}

Into the silence I go,
Once in a while,
from the large world outside,
to the small world inside,
to make peace with myself.

My soul; the home,
where I live with grace.
Being honest,
readily surrendering
all that was concealed;
faking perfection,
annoying me,
the peace that I want
to gather and embrace.

Into the silence I go.
Once in a while,
shedding away
all that was unreal,
to caress myself
over those wounds.

To address those scars,
mostly overlooked,
and to surrender
in silence
to myself—
the soul, to which
I belong.
