By Raymond Carver, an American poet who wrote this as his last entry in his diary:
“and did you get what you wanted from this life, even so?”
“and what did you want?”
“to call myself beloved and to feel myself beloved on this Earth.”
By Alain de Botton, ‘Religion for Atheists’ (paraphrased):
“Perhaps all our unkind thoughts about ourself or others, all our judgements, perhaps that’s nothing more than our lenses becoming occluded by tiredness and weariness and not seeing properly.”
A Poem for Someone Who is Juggling Her Life ~ By Rose Cook
This is a poem for someone who is juggling her life. Be still sometimes. Be still sometimes.
It needs repeating over and over to catch her attention over and over, as someone who is juggling her life finds it difficult to hear.
Be still sometimes. Be still sometimes. Let it all fall sometimes.
