Pondering Amidst the Chaos

When you find yourself in the midst
of one of life’s freefalls
and every instinct demands
that you curl up in a ball,

...that! that is when you have to believe,
open up your arms, arch your back,
let your eyes see,
and when the carousel has stopped,
in the silence you align,
‘s the key for your just reprieve.

  2. Very thought provoking

    Just wondering exactly what is meant by "and when the carousel has stopped",
    But maybe I do . . . .

  6. yes, it is when you feel the need to retreat that often you need to find that strength of faith, or whatever you call it to face down...chances are you are on the cusp on something great...smiles.

  11. I think the most pivotal decisions in all of life are made when faced with that decision to either curl up in a ball or rise up, chin held high, and face it head on...
