Artist's Description

Something a little different this time, this is an uplifting or positive poem I wrote just a couple of days ago, which is sort of like a mantra for me. Thought it would be nice to have it framed, as it’s something that I hope to learn to recite off by heart to myself during stressful times. I hope you like it. There is the soft shape of a deer and a butterfly in the background. It goes like this:

I shall quietly abide on a calm sea
And when the waters violently strike and gash the boat
I shall simply calm myself and thee

I shall sit atop a lone hill gazing down on the soft grass
And when the wind forms into gusts that whip my skin
I shall simply shift my thoughts to meditate on gratitudinal things

I shall go slowly where I walk
And when the crowds rush to beat me
I will console myself that I continue in the moment

I shall walk in bare feet to connect with the earth
And when the burs and sharp rocks tear my feet
I will remember the suffering of those before me

I will sing a song to heaven
And when the world is overwhelmed by chaos and pain
I choose good intention and prayerful gestures

I will show the world my smile
And when fear grips my every bone and shatters my dreams
I will look kindly and love regardless
