Poetry - Some Days

Updated on July 6, 2010

Some Days

 Some days

I just have to be still

Like I am frozen

Waiting to melt

Some days

I just have to be still

 

 Like if I move

I'll fly away

Some days

I just have to be still

 My legs are rooted

like a tree

Some days

I just have to be still

Maybe I'm just lazy

Some days

I just have to be still

My brain registers

nothing

but the sound

of crickets chirping

For the moment,

it is an empty vessel

Everything is hazy

Some days

I just have to be still

And so I retreat

to that place

where I can

just be still

in quiet meditation

except for the sound

of the crickets

      I find it very hard to be still. I was very still while I read your poem. It is beautiful. I will practice many times now to be still. Thank you for sharing.

      Wonderful poem. I think some people should follow your example and just be still some days. In stillness comes inspiration.

      I love your poem.. And I can really relate.. I understand exactly what you mean..Some days we all should take a moment to just be still.. Because our mind and spirit never seems to stop..
