Be Still

I want to be able to 
muffle the sounds 
drown the voices 
enough to let me 
think and hear myself
speak for a moment

I want to tame the flame
the many things that 
forge me
into who I am
what I can do
what I will become

I want to quiet this
wandering mind
from going too far
from its core
to prevent it from missing 
its windows

Most of all, 
I want to be just
for the sake of myself
and others
that I love
and care for

Picture of a swing was borrowed from here.
