My Confession: Peter Herget

I am at peace when I am writing.
It gives clarity to all who surround me,
everything around is quiet, still.
Nothing moves, only thoughts flow.
As I sit here, I am blissfully aware of all that is around.
This life is like a rose, without its thorns
it would not be as beautiful as it is.
Essence is beauty, beauty is essence.
One cannot be without the other.
Hand in hand, side by side
with each new day comes a new moment of truth.
That truth is the love that is shared and shown every day
between us.
