In the corner of the place
I spent most of my time,
stood a peacemaker, all quiet.
Watching me take on the world’s pace,
it just stayed there,
observing my life’s riot.
It didn’t shine or speak
or walked or touched, just stood by.
Perhaps to listen.
It was then when I realised,
we do not need any human
to share how we are feeling.
My peacemaker was enough for me
to calm me down in times of peril.
A small plant helped me in living.
