Middle Path

Listening brought me peace,
stillness I could not resist;
the lotus within blossomed
releasing love that is endless

No more worries keeping me up
tormenting my mind;
old habits vanished
giving me freedom to unwind

I walk the middle path,
each step is filled with bliss…
when I am present
nothing is missed

Rather than turn back
I breathe into my heart
igniting all that was lame
and tearing me apart

The wheel turns once again
in a direction that is healing
tranquility washes over me
fueling my life’s journey.
