I shall quietly abide

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

I shall quietly abide
