I close my eyes and wish for a peace the world conspires to steal
But the quiet I seek is forever moving and dragged from my reach
The storm within and crashing outside seems only to gather strength
Leaving in it’s wake a tormented mind that simply wants to weep

In turn and in time it may resolve with conflict at last giving way
For a moment at least rest will find a home inside quieted soul
To breath in freedom and not be restricted by life’s wrath
Battle worn and ravaged by war but standing still standing I know
