Take Your Time

Take your time
to stare in the emptiness
when nothing can be seen.

Take your time to be still
when stillness is nowhere to be found
when silence speaks with a roar
too thunderous to bear.

Take your time to cry
when teardrops don't want to fall
when the jewels of sorrow
have been exhausted
but many more should depart.

Take your time to rest
when restlessness is all you know
when thoughts go in circles
and the future repeats the past.

Take your time to hope
when despair blinds your eyes
when today is worse than yesterday
and tomorrow is out of sight.

Take your time
since there is no other time
no other place
no other life
no other you.
