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!
