Phillip Coffey - Peace and Tranquility

Peace and Tranquility - By Phillip Coffey
Yes, there are difficulties - much out there is to be religiously scorned
But always, without exception, be true and honest to the center core.
Doing what is right among the populace is often not a bona fide thrill.
Not brandishing a weapon - much in the narrowed path, not a joyful frill.

Though the majestic mountains are eroding slowly to the deep blue sea
Sit up and take a silenced moment - much beauty is aligned on the shore.
Be careful with the steps cautiously taken beneath the overhanging cliffs.
Chart a balanced act near the setting of life's sun with peace and tranquility, evermore.
