It Only Takes a Moment


~ by Danna Faulds

It only takes a reminder to breathe, a moment to be still,

and just like that,

something in me settles, softens,

makes space for imperfection.

The harsh voice of judgment

drops to a whisper

and I remember again

that life isn’t a relay race;

that we will all cross the finish line;

that waking up to life is what we were born for.

As many times as I forget,

catch myself charging forward

without even knowing where I’m going,

that many times I can make the choice to stop,

to breathe,

and be,

and walk slowly into the mystery.
