Can you keep peace within

when the noise without

builds and builds in fear

can you keep faith in the face

of a world fragmenting

spinning in emotion and tears?


Can you keep heart and mind open

when the roof of your life

creaks a threat of collapse

when the storm is roaring so violently

a dawn seems impossible perhaps?


Can you hear your own truth when all around

a story is screamed that’s not yours

can you feel to your roots

an anchoring trust that guides you in universal laws?


Can you find ground within you

to seed a future you wish to nurture and grow

and water it with breath so present

that light lives as above here below
