Halt

Suddenly the world
Became silent,
While
You were trying
To find the silence
Within.
All as it was
Came to a grinding
Halt,
While you were trying
To bring yourself to
Halt.
And with it came
A reprise,
A renewal,
A quiet realisation,
Reminder:
You are not in control
Of anything
But your inner self
And her health.
So you paint,
You play piano
You dance to the
Rhythm of her
Rhyme.
