At Peace

It was a few days ago,

I was walking

alone

in the cold,

(not lonely, not cold),

and I realized

That I

was at peace

with myself,

with everyone else

with the world.

 

It was new

fresh

exhilarating.

 

I listened,

The wind making my face red

Pulling my curls

this way and that.

My boots

crunched into the frozen snow.

I could feel the cold, too.

Not just on my face and fingers,

In me.

It wasn't in a bad way,

though.

Because I was at peace.

 

I didn't worry about getting home late

get mad at my siblings

or my mom

I didn't think

about school drama,

not in the stressful way.

I was happy.

I was at peace.
