Look Up to the Sky
to Calm a Perturbed Mind
by Apolinario Villalobos
When our head is heavy with
and our heart flutters
with unrestrained trepidation,
we become fazed and seemed helpless,
with only one comfort left – the sky’s vastness.
Looking up to the sky so vast
makes us realize,
that we got limitations
a humbling truth we must accept,
though, for the proud may not be easy,
for his arrogant heart has no place for humility.
The vast sky can calm the mind
perturbed, it may be –
tranquil floating clouds
that change hues against the blue,
seem to tell us that serenity can be had,
if we trust no other one, but the all-knowing God!
