For a moment, we pause
From the clamor of our tired minds
Unburdening the weight of heartache
To take a long, deep breath of relief
As we listen to the soft, still voice
Of understanding and peace.
What do you know with certainty
When all of the exterior noises fade?
What do you know within your heart
To carry you through the heavy days?
In the confusion of grief and change,
We tune into the frequency of stillness
Reaching for the ever-present truth
Often forgotten in life’s pandemonium,
Of what matters
Of who we truly are
Of where we stand
Of how we have survived
And with that knowing, we can breathe
Aware that life offers us means of revival
Through our own evolved perspectives
And that still, inner voice of peace.
