Return to Center 

​This poem is called “Return to Center.” I wrote it to show how easily we’re knocked off balance when we aren’t strong within ourselves and we allow outside/external situations to effect us. This is easily avoided when we refuse to react to that which is outside of ourselves. 

The incredible artwork is by A.M. Lorek. 
Back to Center 

by: Carolyn Glackin ♡
Caught up, twisted

Something’s got me conflicted 

Pulled me out of my bliss

Now I’m in the abyss 
Wayward, reckless 

Confused, feckless 

Out of control 

Now I’m in a black hole 
Dizzy, hazy

Thoughts all crazy

Beyond paranoid 

Now I’m lost in the void 
Gasping, rasping 

Can’t catch my breath 

Adrenaline pumping 

Imminent death 
Helter skelter 

Searching for shelter 

Can’t find a friend 

Could this be the end?? 
Praying, chanting 

All done with the ranting 

I now see a light

Looks like I’m winning this fight
Steadying, staying 

Thoughts relaying 

Returning to center 

Such a pleasure to enter
Grounded, woken

Gratitude spoken 

Lessons learned 

Wisdom earned 
Back to center 

Rooted deep

All is calm

Peaceful sleep
