Back on My Feet

My med­i­ta­tion prac­tice
Has been laps­ing as of late
Life’s been too con­fus­ing
For the calm it can cre­ate

A faith­ful med­i­ta­tor
Will know just what I mean
Start­ing back is dif­fi­cult
Far more than it may seem

Past bag­gage and emo­tions
Rise right up to the top
The tears and fears and twitch­ing
Real­ly make me want to stop

But life is for the liv­ing
We just have to pow­er through
Things will final­ly set­tle
It’s just what I have to do

I want to thank you for the venue
The oppor­tu­ni­ty to retreat
Some­times going back­wards
Will put you on your feet.


This poem is ded­i­cat­ed to the orga­niz­ers and par­tic­i­pants of the 2015 Media Mak­ers Retreat at Val­lecitos Ranch.
