And the World Becomes Still

I hear a voice gently whisper,
“Peace.”

When all the world is upended around me,
When my thoughts ricochet around my mind with unstoppable speed,
When anxiety rattles me to my core,
I hear a voice gently whisper,
“Peace,”
And the world becomes still.

When I am sad and scared and lonely,
When the loss seems too much to bear,
When tears stream down my face and my body is wracked with sobs,
I hear a voice gently whisper,
“Peace,”
And the world becomes still.

When I am filled with anticipation,
When a look of exuberance covers my face,
When jubilation is the only thing on my mind,
I hear a voice gently whisper,
“Peace,”
And the world becomes still.

When I am sitting in a quiet place,
When I am meditating on gratitude,
When my heartbeat is slow and steady,
I hear a voice gently whisper,
“Peace,”
And the world becomes still.






Happy Easter if you celebrate it! Either way, I wish you a day filled with light, love, peace, and happiness!
