Spoken Word Piece: In the Key of Life

Rest stop

Rest, my friend
Quench your thirst and stop moving for a moment
Somewhere between mementos and momentum
The stillness beckons, detached from all questions
Be still, my friend
It’s okay reap the spoils of our hard work
We made it, sister, but our inner mechanisms still ticker
We made it brother, out of the wild
Forests to cities gifted to a future child
Yet you continue moving, friend
Chasing the unattainable goal of perfection
This is the game of life, remove the narrow focus from your sight
My brother, my sister,the goal has been reached
In every utterance of speech, in each existence of we
So please rest, my friend
This journey began long before you and me
Buy we still bear the scars of sadness and jubilee
Simply breathe and taste what was and what is yet to come
The noise and the silence harmonizes as one
Song in the key of life
