Create The Illusion Of Calm Poem by Dee Daffodil

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

How true this piece of advice is, Dee. By creating an aura of calm, those around you will feel more secure and safe, and this feeds back to you. I hope the intended recipient takes heed........ Well written, wording superb. Love, Fran xxx

The calmest people or at least those who 'look' the calmest are the dead. I remember my Grandfather was cutting his lawn and fell over. When they picked him up he actually looked happy.

Dee, I think that everyone needs to hear that, but, not calm as much, as the illusion of control in thier lives! ... Enuff fillosofee! B.V.A.

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 :))
