Be Still My Heart
by Jason Tomlinson

Be still my heart you have all that you need
let your beat be steady let peace take the lead
through valleys of fear shame and condemnation
avenues of complacency ingratitude and frustration
let none of it quicken your beating
recognize it for the moment that it is fleeting
because it is nothing more than a fickle breeze
a temporary phenomenon not worth your ease
not worth any part of your strength or your will
you have all you need – my heart – be still
