Calm abiding

Kindness bestows upon me an open expanse

And inside this calm

I can finally breathe

Why was it that I thought I must

Respond in panic

To this frenzied

Rush rush hurry up?

Was it all I ever knew before?

Never feeling I could ever be enough

Or be loved

Purely for existing

But now you allow me this

And you are no longer

A force outside of me

But instead

Inside my heart this lovely gentle space

Is finally opening

Where in I feel

This calm allowing

And

Calm abiding
