The noise of so many accentuating vantage points
The noise of online worlds, algorithms rejoiced.
The noise framing more doom, media disseminating fear,
The noise of the sound of our politicians increasing gear
The noise of love lost, strangers projection of distaste
The noise of public opinion in haste
The noise of our loved ones, not always making the space
The noise of conforming, regardless of place
The noise of the illusion we need to strive
The noise of another illusion of a place that will never arrive
The noise overwhelms our sense of faith
That we are now more blind, by the perception of all this disgrace
What offers light, to move the noise away
So the noise can no longer lead us astray
Earthing of the feet,
That enables the body and the world to meet
The activation of energy flowing through the body
Reminds me we are alive, human and embodied
Big deep breaths, moving through me,
Creating a calming, centering way to clearly be,
The strong essence of a flower emerging,
Permeating scents that are so charming,
The suns rays, reenergising
The changes of season proving, these times will keep evolving
The salty sea breeze,
The ebbs and flow of a wave, reminding calm and ease.
Slow down, rest, create space
Break the illusion that any of this is a race.
Your senses are a powerful tool, to remind you are alive,
We are a product of nature, we meant to thrive.
In a polarised world,
Remember it’s a idea, a made up construct to displace
Instead intentionally create, nurture your grace.
We are all human and there is no one way to be
Our diversity is our strength and our sovereign right here.
