You might ask me

what peace looks like.

Peace looks like the scent of

empty noise;

is the colour of

midnight’s rainbow; sounds

like time that is

neither ante or

post meridiem; is

seasoned without utterance yet

dances on the pulse of my thoughts

lapping on the waves of the morning’s edge.

Peace moves me to be still;

knows how to touch my heart with

a lingering good morning kiss.

Peace is like audible cake; tastes

like my favourite memory and

wears me like bespoke over-garments

made by God’s own seamstress.

This morning

I am at peace.

Neither coming nor going

I have arrived,

neither late nor early

I am on time

neither here nor there

I am alone.


I am at PEACE

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
