"Cherry Trees" (2018) - Chapbook - Gloria Mannazzu - 4/15

KEEP QUIET

Keep quiet
why are you so upset?

Let the people go
Let your thoughts go
you are free
you are peace.

The path to non-attachment
means training the mind
means leaving space for the void
means not knowing what will happen.

I know that I don’t know
I cannot control
the future of my life.

I can change
I get ready
I am finding
true beauty within me.
