Stillness

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.
