Reflections

Standing,

Looking over precipices;

When does fear of heights end?

Sitting,

Enjoying chatting with friends;

Why do I drink tea?

Smiling,

Watching giggling toddlers play;

Why do we protect some?

Hurting,

Listening to others cry;

When do tears cease?

Jumping,

Surprised by a screeching car;

Where does my life come from?

Looking,

Glorious colour blooming;

Why do we stop for beauty?

Resting,

Finding strength in anchored peace;

Can violence’s tide be stopped?

Hoping,

Knowing you have destiny;

How do I receive such insight?

 

Believing,

Because Spirit lifts off darkness;

How do we become contagious?
