Owl Poetry & Prose

The Pangs of Calm

It’s been so many years that I somehow seem to have forgotten

In a way, the pain, the hurt once brutally begotten

But now as I reflect and inspect

That part of my heart that has been bruised

By hurtful words, reactions in anger

Vile thoughts all poured forth to linger

Somehow now seem to have subdued and died

Like the feelings that tormented me and cried

Damn you, vile creature of this Earth

I hate you forsake you and your miserable birth

Yet now I feel the storm has subsided and left

And I, a pang of nostalgia hits and sometimes leaves me bereft

Yet somehow I am treading the waters of my being

With a sense of calm, contentment and just seeing

That which enfolds me and my life’s purpose

It does not call for another to be a part of its circus

No, I am fine. I have overcome and moved on

My life is journeying forwards even though you are gone
