I’m delighted that so many friends are offering pieces for the Five Minute Friday party. This one is from Sarah; our first piece in poetry form.
Voices ring like claxons in my head
My eyes assaulted by a coloured blur
The mingled scents of humans in my nose
The acrid taste of fear invades my mouth
Surrounded by too much to take it in
Each sense clamours for my minds review
Each touch, sight, smell or sound another blow
I cannot comprehend the things I feel
So buffeted in every sense I stand
And standing in itself becomes a fight
My younger self trying to wrest control
To run from here and find a quiet place
Then deep within speaks a familiar voice
‘Be still my child, and know that I am God’
And quiet returns to still my anxious soul
For even in the turmoil, He is peace
