It is in the silence that you will find God


I’m sitting in a boat,
mist drops, cold breeze, nothing.
It is silent.
The ocean rippled and roared.
I sat silently trying not to wince.

"It is in the silence that you will find God"

I gave up looking, striving, finding, searching
because I don’t know
what I’m looking for,
not sure what I want either.

Perhaps I simply want to find peace,
to be at peace with myself.

Even when the droplets of water start blurring my vision,
storms making me sick and cold,
even when I find myself alone in the boat.

I want to find my soul settled,
when I dip my head into deep waters,
hold my breath and let go.
