Enlightenment - Poem by Mary Jesusa Villegas

The country music is playing
cradles the chaos
in my sleep
An hour of solitude
spent wondering
who I am
in this old, dying jeep.

My fairy godmother's words
troubles me way down deep
But at least I found a way
to be discreet
Such a technique
saved me from my last trip.

Life is not meaningless
so as to stress yourself
God is everywhere to bless
those who are anxious and stressed.
So relax a bit and take a rest.

Pursue peace of mind first
In these unhealed wounds
I am my own nurse
Was it God-given ability?
Alas!
I just found out lately
Despite the anxiety
It was overwhelmingly easy
so smooth,
just to be me.

-This poem was inspired by the author's turning points in every chapter of her life. Enlightenment- she's so fond of wisdom that she always brings a small notebook and pen everytime she's out. Who knows where she can hear the whisper of wisdom? The author believes wisdom can be found anywhere ‘despite the anxiety.'
