When the road of life gets rocky,
And your soul becomes dead-tired,
And you want to give up searching
For the things you most admired,
Take a deep breath in and hold it,
Let it out to the count of four.
Breathe in and out until
You find your Self to be more.
Sit down and explore your anger,
Let go, leave the past behind.
Stay here, in this present moment.
To yourself, be incredibly kind.
Be with the emotions inside you.
Tell fear to sit down, be still.
Tell pain there is never an answer
Why things happen to be God’s will.
At first there is only the silence,
The beat of your blood as it flows,
The rising of your chest and belly,
The sensation of just letting go.
Just rest, be one with your being.
Enjoy the quiet in you.
Soon Self will rise to the occasion.
You’ll learn things you never knew.
