I`m not really a poetry person, but this is one that I really find helpful at times. So hope it will also be helpful to a friend and other readers
If you stand very still in the heart of a wood.
You will hear many wonderful things -
The snap of a twig and the wind in the trees
And the whirr of invisible wings.
If you stand very still in the turmoil of life
And you wait for the voice from within:
You will be led down the ways of wisdom and peace,
Through a rough world of chaos and din.
If you stand very still and hold on to your faith,
You will get all the help that you ask;
You will draw from the silence the things that you need -
Hope and courage and strength for your task.
