Disarray is everywhere.

I rush,

Seeking peace


Where do I begin?

My heartbeat quickens.

My head hurts.

I lose my balance,


Then fall.

I cry out,

And you answer me.

“My child,” you say,

“I’ve been waiting.”

You smile . . . I exhale.

  1. I really like this, Martha. Its brevity speaks volumes. :)

    • Thank you so much! I was hoping that would be the case. I almost didn’t share it, wondering if it was meant more to awaken me . . . but felt a nudge . . .
