My breath is weak from yelling

The storm, long passed.

I’ve still got a lot of strength in me

No need to worry about that.

I simply need a minute of silence

To me, that’s a couple of days.

I need to find myself again

Realize what is important.

Remember what I was going for

Before all the noise began.

I need to stop for a moment

Look around, see who is here.

Really here;

Not just around to make noise.


I need to breathe

I need focus

I need reality.


I am my own stability.

I am my own rock.

I am my own hero.

I am my best friend.


I need to remember that.
