They befall us all,
for it’s a part of being a walking
and breathing kaleidoscope,
on a planet so full of hope.
When they come,
it’s very normal to withdraw,
and look for reasons for this flaw.
Asking questions to the sky above,
yet, that might not be where
the answers are located, my love.
Tragedies are a part of the calamity of
this thing we call life.
They are part and parcel of the
seen and unseen,
and everything in between; conjoined
forever in an illusory dance with,
my friend are all around you,
so when you have a moment,
take a minute, and stop. Stop
moving, and just be
with all that surrounds you, and
is within you.
And, in that silence,
listen, feel, and always
keep it real.
Reality holds a lot of promise,
when we move out of the way,
and let go of our preconceived notions.
When we stay in motion,
and let our hearts open,
allowing the silence within to
determine our devotion.
