In the Quiet Stillness

In the quiet stillness
I hear my pulse
And feel the rhythm 
Of my life
Deep within me
I remember I am alive

That rushing sound
That fills the inner reaches
Of my mind
Is the sign for me
The indicator that says
Today is another day
To make my choices

To follow God’s path
Or to wander away
To duck my head
Or lift up my eyes
To love with great abandon
Or cower in self-imposed loneliness

In the quiet stillness
In the deepest depths within
I hear the pulsating 
Rushing sound
Of life
I am alive
But will I truly live?
