Voice Of Reason

Nothing is so urgent that I seek to escape myself within it.
For me it's just not there anymore....
at least not to any measurable degree.

Once quite good at hiding from myself
within any given crisis,
I could always be counted on to extend myself,
beyond myself.
But no more....

Today I can stand perfectly still
within the midst of any whirlwind
and remain unscathed.

It's nice to be the calm voice of reason,
even if I am the only one listening.
