Slow Down

When the world brings you down to your knees,
And gravity keeps pulling you down.
You sink deeper and deeper,
Into a pit of darkness and into the unknown.

You have all the time of the world down there,
You feel the seconds go by slower.

Which is exactly what your soul needs,
A chance to slow down.
A chance to breathe,
And be aware of the things that surround you..

After a while things don’t seem so bad there,
The unknown isn’t vague anymore.

And the darkness begins to embrace a new light,
Which can easily transform into your own tiny beacon of hope.

  1. I like what you have written! One can almost feel the downward movement and then the ‘settling in’ until it begins to feel like ‘home.’
