Peaceful (A Poem)

Peaceful (A Poem) - Gabriela Maria

No worries, no anxiety,
no need to control or change anything.
A soft feeling of joy,
quiet and persistent
like the autumn rain.
It seems around me it is only a vast space
where time is only now.
Gone is the old guilt
for not doing anything,
for not wanting anything,
for not being anyone.
I need nothing of that,
I go around smelling the air,
feeling the ground under my feet,
listening to life
playing its music,
dancing with it.
Everything I need is for free.

I am here to experience life, and part of it is expressing myself through photography, writing, painting and sharing. I have a regular 9 to 5 job to pay my expenses, but my passion is to explore what make us human, specially exploring the mind.

    Thanks to you Vironika. It’s exactly like that, stop focusing in the inner chat and feel the experience instead. Suddenly it becomes wide and ok as it is. I like the intensity of the experience as a person too and I indulge in this a lot. But its no longer “my master”, to say it in a way that is not the best description but Im sure you understand.

    • I definitely do understand you. I love the simplicity and beauty of your words, and the depth of your journey. It’s been a pleasure watching you from the sidelines. The little I have seen has made me very proud of you. 🙂

  4. This is so beautifully captured, Gabriela. I love the line “Everything I need is for free.” This is just how it feels to interrupt the mind’s constant chatter and, suddenly, experience our truth. Thank you for sharing this!
