Peace Of Mind



I don't want riches, I want to be happy
I don't want a crowd of people, I want a few people who love me
I don't want to be appreciated, I want to be understood
I don't want flattery, I want subtle praise
I don't want a day of fun, I want small moments of bliss
I don't want to hear sweet lies, I want to face the bitter truth
I don't want the envious look, I want the look of respect
I don't want to be compared, I want to be left alone
I don't want the blaring noise, I want the soft music
I don't want to be bound to life, I want to be left free to enjoy it
I don't want a genius mind, I just want peace in it

Peace of mind.

    1. Not necessarily Annie. I know a lot of people who would kill for everything I don't want.

    1. Again, not necessarily Red. Some people are just content with the first half of all my sentences.

  8. I want peace of mind. :) I think when you have that, the other larger or smaller things, fall in place.

  10. I also want whatever you said you wanted :-) Brilliantly put into words. This is pretty much what most people want.
