Amidst all the chaos
Amidst all the chaos, the bustle and noise,
I am learning to stop and pause.
To occasionally step off the merry-go-round and miss a ride,
It’s OK; I don’t mind.
Because I’m learning life isn’t a race,
There are no prizes for first place.
I’m learning to recognise the tigers behind the trees,
They are not out there but within me.
So I will take this with me on my journey – I have made a start,
I’ll walk on with courage and peace in my heart.
