Somehow, I slowly allow my thoughts to penetrate my soul to weariness
Wanting to stop to get the thoughts in my mind regulated and fixed
Having so much going on I ponder as to where I could go quietly
To drift awhile and daydream as a studious soul seeking answers
I see no way out of the hustle and bustle through my days planned
Hoping that I stumble upon a good diversion to escape and let go
Never thinking I would allow thoughts of idling but wanted to
For so long no break from the norm or chaotic routines I bear
Suffering from the tension of what I’m told is right and equitable
I seek solace and stillness but find none because of my teachings and beliefs
Yet wrestling trying to find a path of peace and understanding within
Never having that me time, to spread my arms wide to look upward and exhale
Desiring for the noise in my head and confusion around me to be gone and final
Until suddenly while looking up, I glimpse the array of a flock so peacefully
Making a melodious sound that gripped my heart as my mind cleared itself
To attentively listen to the symphony that drew me into a place of serenity and awe
Saying how could it be, coming from such unusual and peculiar source as this?
I had to take in the moment, forgetting the source and remembering the need
Realizing that blessings come from some least likely sources and when least expected
Rejoicing and dancing I did that day, for the release, peace and a personal Holiday entitled "Private Retreat".
