Month: May 2014

I found stillness

In this craziness
Of bustling and movement;
Of constant reminders gusting around me,
Tugging and whispering “go, go, go”

In this madness of life and confusion
Of indecisiveness, anxiety;
Of self doubt and self hate,
Of gale-storm winds of society telling me I’m not quite there,
To not stop
Never stop
Keep moving
Always moving
Always going
Billions of nagging thoughts constantly pulling me in every direction,
Demanding my attention
Demanding I nurture it, solve it, remove it,

In this chaos of the world that surrounds me,
Seven billion people moving,
Laughing
Talking
Eating
Singing
Loving
Hating
Living
Crying

I found stillness
In your breath.
