Crisis and Serenity

Today my state of serenity

Had enemies beating at the walls
A brewing crisis and rising palls
Tried hard to make inroad calls
Equanimity beat all these squalls
My serenity stayed unmauled

Alarm bells rang and trilled
Emergency shook strong willed
Grace and acceptance seesawed
Hope hung tight on wing and prayer
My serenity fought off all these dares

Faith, hope and charity were taught in school
Forgiveness and acceptance are also great tools,
Those who advocate these are no fools
They help in centering mind, body and spirit
My serenity was achieved by this tenet

Today my state of serenity

Had enemies beating at the walls
A brewing crisis and rising palls
Tried hard to make inroad calls
Equanimity beat all these squalls
My serenity stayed un-mauled

Prayers, acceptance, grace,
Focused presence of mind
Timely action unrelenting vigil
All created magic and miracle
My state of serenity stayed put

Thus crisis was weathered and conquered!!!

Seeds of faith are always within us; sometimes it takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.
