Seeking Serenity

I seek serenity within this mind
A place of solace all I wish to find
A moment of peace from memories so cruel
A way to stop the madness that here would rule
But there is no magic lock or door to close
That would keep at bay all that which would impose
Memories keep coming, never slowing down
A tidal wave of pain under which I drown
Gasping for air each morning when I wake
Wondering how much more my soul can take
Before it is crushed beneath the weight
Of a world that’s filled with so much hate
