My Soul is Quiet

by Samuel De Lemos


My soul is quiet-
it’s neither peaceful
or fretful, but rather

Somedays are like that,
there is heaviness in
the air I breath.

I wish I could snap
out of it,
But I feel the weight
of the world
on my shoulders-

Though they are broad,
the heaviness at
times, is too
much to bear.

All this is meant
to help me
that I’m a man
with limitations.

And, it’s during those
quiet times,
That I give
my heart-
a little time
to repair.
