Walk Slowly




It only takes a reminder to breathe,

a moment to be still and just like that,

something in me settles, softens,

makes space for imperfection.

The harsh voice of judgment drops to a whisper

and I remember again that life isn’t a relay race;

that we will all cross the finish line;

that waking up to life is what we were born for.

As many times as I forget, catch myself charging forward

without even knowing where I am going,

that many times I can make the choice

to stop, to breathe, to be and walk

slowly into the mystery
