Finding Peace

Sometimes entanglements separate,
so often for the better.

Love was not lacking, or even desire,
only that paths parted.

Being free of attachment is a benefit,
and loyalty isn’t always a virtue;

Truly, clinging for acceptance
and striving for victory
leave only expectations.

If clinging is your way,
cling to the truth that expectations lead to suffering.

If striving is your habit,
strive to train yourself to be still.

For in stillness there is awareness,
and quietness of mind.

It is only in stillness
that you will find what you seek.
