My head hurts, the noise level just seems to be getting higher snd higher.
People talking, screaming to be heard over one another. It really feels like it’s a world of who shouts the loudest, wins.
When did we stop listening, holding out for the sweet silence of a moment. Waiting for the small voice of our intuition to speak to us before we spoke?
Holding our own counsel?
I know I can be the same reacting before thinking. Engaging my tongue before I engage my brain.
I think lockdown has changed me, the silence whilst often isolating was also freeing. I don’t have to be anyone but me, no illusions to fulfil beyond the ones that hold truth.
The quiet, the time to be still. I realise now how much I need it and how much it calms my heart.
I sometimes wonder if my heart is attached to my life the crazier it gets the harder it beats. Yet that would make some kind of sense, yet as I lie in my bed praying for sleep my anxiety has other plans.
I’m breathing deep but insomnia is becoming a fast friend. I know we all have periods of this but recently the noise has begun to hurt my brain.
This is this
This has to be
Covid, petrol shortages, empty food alises. Why does 3am feel the best time to worry about them?
Hospitals struggling, NHS at mass. Drs and nurses once being clapped are now being condemned.
Unfair, unkind, untruth
People reacting without researching, laying blame at the accessible rather than at the feet of those that hide away. Those that hold the responsibility.
Oh mind please
I just want to sleep
I just want to be still.
I see the dawn is coming and before long the sun will rise.
I need some rest
I need my mind to just quieten down.
How do I be still in this crazy world, how can this fallen world learn to stay true?
