Drifting
In A Boat Of Dreams
My Thoughts Row
Through Waves
Of Anxiety
Seeking To Find
The Shore Of Wholeness

Rocks Filled
With Yesterday’s Fears
Block My View

Caught In The Current
Of Acceptance
I Row In Circles
My Mind Lost
In Search Of Itself

Darkness Covers
My Hope
Of Success

Conformity
Holds My Desire
In An Anchor
Of Loneliness

Suddenly
A
New Wave
Of Thought
Sinks My Boat
I’m Cast
Into
An Altered State
Where White Caps
Of Love
Push Me Upward

I Find Myself Floating
In The Mist
Of Another Reality

A Connected Consciousness
Is Kissing My Lips
I Taste
The Salt Of Oneness
Filling
My Lifeless Body

Another Wave
Washes
Over My System
Of Narrow-Mindedness
Cleansing And Clearing
My Trapped Vision
Releasing Me
From
Distorted Perceptions

A Bright Light
Of Belief
Warms My Body
My Skin Vibrates
With Energy

Now
I See Myself
As A Wave
That Carries Me
To A Sea
Of
Universal Consciousness

You are beautifully inspired and a perfect addition to the Peak!

I can't imagine a better way to express these profound thoughts.

Great poem Hal! The imagery is very familiar and display emotions so accurately!
