Create The Illusion Of Calm

Rating: 4.4
A poem for someone who needs to hear this...

When life sends you chaos and destruction
Create the illusion of calm
Others depend on you
To get them through
The tough times
Show them
Guide them
Lead them
Release them from their fear
When life sends you turmoil and despair

And when life send you personal defeat
And anguish
Create the illusion of calm
Even when your spirit has been broken
And you feel cut in two
For others are watching you
And depend on you, to...
Show them
Guide them
Lead them

And in time...
God willing...
That illusion of calm
Will once again
Release you from the chains
That tightly bind you
Leaving your spirit free
Restore again the body and the soul
And render you whole again

Dee, this is officially one of my favorite 'words of wisdom' ever... In the midst of tough times, it's often beyond our reach, that calm. We need someone to remind us. Mind over matter - it works. So, if it's all right, I'm copying this to post on my mirror. And here's love to a wonderful soul: YOU! Esther : ]

I like this poem because it shows that whatever life throws at us, we have to deal with it and carry on. There is great strength in creating an illusion of calm, so much so that it becomes no longer an illusion, as the calmness will exist for real (if you get my philosophical drift :))

Words of wisdom abound in this fine poem. I call it 'the magic if' a word coined by Stanislavski, the famous Russian actor and director. He used to say if you were playing a part which you found difficult, use your magic if. 'If' I was in this situation, 'what would I do'? If I was calm and controlled and at peace, what would it feel like? I've used it so many times in my life - and not always on the stage either. Thanks for penning this. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxx

Can't argue with this advice. Others who are under pressure need to see it in the eyes of those who would help them - esp in your line of work - and it's a very fine thing to nourish the strength that actually allows to you feel it as well as look it. Solid writing from start to finish, and sound advice Dee. A very fine poem. xx jim
