The Second Day

It’s the second day
And I feel okay
Lead into wholeness
In a different way
Such completion
Is found inside
In the quiet corners of the mind
Tranquility sinks deeper into
My being, a gift truly worth feeling
Even the drops of rain
Seem perfect as the clearest of skies
Such completion isn’t hard to find
Although it may require You to grind
Out, some old stories of the mind

My words will never be enough
To deliver this to You
Only You
Can write new stories of Your own
Reach fullness in which ever way You will
And You will, certainly will

Just let Your insides be still
Even when the outside is moving still
