SILENCE

I sit alone, in the 

     S

        I

          L

             E

                N

                    C

                       E

             of my mind

Learning how to

    just BE

Thoughts swirl…

My body aches… to do

For so long, my pattern has been one of action…

I do not know how to sit

    alone

        with my thoughts

I heard someone once say

    I am a human Being, not a human Doing

What does it mean to just BE?

Why do I act as if I am a human Doing?

    … to gain approval

        … to garner acceptance

            … to earn somebody’s love

I think if I DO enough, keep busy enough

I will not have to listen to my self-hatred

I sit in the

     S

        I

          L

             E

                N

                    C

                       E

Can I change just one thought for today?

If I can nudge one thought positively today,

    then maybe tomorrow I can nudge two

Maybe someday…

    … I can change the course of my life

    … with small changes

    … with quiet moments

Moments where I simply allow myself to BE

Moments in the

     S

        I

          L

             E

                N

                    C

                       E

             of my mind
