[Poem] The Moment

I wake up and I feel the heaviness settle in
discouragement
disillusionment
wondering… why?
what am I doing wrong?

Tears fall and I must decide
to change
to leave
or
to accept
this

I step outside… to change
I breathe in the crisp morning air
chaos surrounds me
cars start
school children leave
sirens race past
insects devour plants

Yet my mind becomes quiet
I feel like the eye of the storm
then
the cacophony surrounding me stills
my heart is stilled
peace is in the morning air
joy is in the dew on the grass

I am joy.
I am love.
I am the calm in the storm.
