{POEM} What the World Needs

World needs

The world needs to hear your peace
To see your actions of gentleness
And love
The world needs you to be strong and soft
In your heart
Not powering through
But loving full out
The anger
The trauma
The pain
The world needs you broken open
And willing to serve
The world needs your big heart

How to Quiet the Mind

quiet mind

The mind doesn’t quiet
Or slow its thinking
And would we even want it to?

It protects us,
Warns us,
Keeps us out of our own way

And also,
The mind creates fear
Indecision and doubt

And so we need a balance
Of logic and peace,
Protection and freedom,
A life free from self-imposed fear

And in that quest
We find stillness,
Forgiveness,
Gratitude for all our weary minds
Have shown us in love
And duty
Faithfully leading the way

Step aside
Let the heart lead
Let the mind rest
A gift for a lifetime of service
