Calm My Soul

Disruptive living

Creates chaos,

Conflict, and


That undo me.

Yesterday, my intention was

A request to God

To calm my soul,

In whatever comes my way.

I had no idea that I would

End up at the hospital

To find out if my mom

Had a heart attack (she did not).

Through the endless waiting,

I willed myself to be calm

For me as much as for her.

Her childlike wonder

Cast its own surrealism

As she didn’t know why she was there.

My heart broke several times

With the knowledge that

This is the beginning of a

Long ending.
