Be Still... - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

Be still
Be calm
Shut out reality
Let the cleansing waters
of meditation lull your mind

Be still
Be patient
Breathe in goodness
Exhale all the sadness
Embedded in your pores

Be still
Be quiet
Drown out the voices
Expell the harshness
and cruelty of the tongue

Be still
Be healed
Embrace the warmth
of the sun on your skin

Be still
Be you
Empower your soul
with the peace that solitude brings

    When in a crisis situation, something that takes you aback, making you gasp for air, when shock is intense and the senses are jumbled, I always say - just breathe... do it for a while and you will feel calmer, breathe easier and your mind will automatically be more focused... That way you will handle the situation better... (Report)Reply
