Trust The Universe Poem by Suzanne Hayasaki

Trust The Universe

Rating: 4.6

I must trust the universe.
I must take my cue from the stars:
I must listen to the infinite wisdom
Hidden in their shining silence.

Everything that must be, will be
In its own time, of its own mind.
I am meant to sit in witness,
To observe, to learn, to accept.

The more I try to assert my will,
The more I flail in my own failings.
The more I question and doubt,
The more my spirit seeps out.

I may seem remote.
I may appear cold.
I may hold myself separate
From the ripples of panic
Flowing out from so many souls.

I simply hold myself steady.
The road ahead is long and uncertain.
I must preserve my energy.
I must keep parts of me in reserve.

I must tend my tiny garden.
I must mend my fence and stock my shelves.
I must rely on my own resources
Until this storm passes and sanity returns.

Suzanne, being who I am, I wonder what you mean by universe. This is another instance where I’d like to sit across a table from a writer—you in this case—and have a conversation. That aside, I recognize in this poem someone who can write and look forward to reading more by you. -Glen
