Favorite Quote:
I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. -Hebrews 13:5


When I am upset
I become very still
to stop the tears
from flowing

some look towards
the ceiling
but I look
straight ahead

and it’s not because
I cannot stand to look
where the roof blocks
my view of the sky

or

because
I want to refrain
from people
asking me
if I’m okay
(believe me
it’s better that way)

but

it’s because
when I feel
the world falling down
on top of me

it’s better
to imagine
it’s still

as still
and as silent
as I am

still.
