Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Be Still

Diversion, truly essential
Especially in this hectic world
Can't live up to our potential
If there is no where to unfurl

We have to loosen when wound tight
It doesn't matter what time of day
A simple deep breath gives insight
Lasting power to stick and stay

Our mind needs to relieve itself
Of long days with whirlwind affairs
Sit quietly upon a shelf
To see if there's solitude there

For sometimes chaos seems to rein
And a corner suits us just fine
From frenzy take time to abstain
And give an ear to the Divine

*Poetic From - A chain of "Quatrains"
