Proceed

Sometimes

You must walk on

Through reeds

That sway sweetly

In silence

Because silence is the word

Telling you to move forward

Speaking to your mind

Comforting your soul

Picking up your feet

Along the trail of truce

Even if it only leads

Back to your own heart

proceed

  11. This is beautiful, and understands that solitude is a healthy, much-needed time, away from all that distracts.
