Calm, my mind is at peace

I no longer recognize what causes me stress

My heart, the aching is gone

as my ears listen intently to the quiet sounds around me

Everything that used to worry me

It seems but so rather absurd

and my love for the world and everything it's made from

grows stronger by the second

I feel connected to what's beyond this restraint I call home

Yet some useless sorrows find their way within my soul

However, I force them back out, declaring "Oh what fools!

You think you trouble me? But I won't let you through my gates,

I will not accept this bloodthirsty fate."
