Be Still, My Heart

August 16, 2008
By Kearney Erauda, Fairfield, CT

Be still, my heart
and expose me to the world beyond...
Unfeeling, I wait.
I'm free!
Slow down each thuds,
no need to let the earth
pause in its tracks.

Be still, my heart
and silence will cry
A final lamentation.
The world will not weep,
for I'm at the verge of my liberty.

This is all I ask.

After all that's done...
Sufferings of mine-
the meanings in the dark.
Relieve the rapid poundings...
And won't you please
Be still, my heart.
