00:00 / 01:08

With a couple of fingers

you can block out the sun,

shielding you from

what you’re trying to outrun


In closing your eyes

for a second to soothe,

disorder disarms

with distractions removed


From a sober recess

senses renew,

recalling resilience

dormant in you


Through cleansing exhale

you alter your course,

in a trauma diffusion

of fear minus force


This pause replays

a mantra to heed,

unique to each

but rooted in need


While they’re brief

it’s what these gestures address;

a flash of authority

we fiercely ingest


If only for an instant

conflict is tamed,

caged within anguish

relieved of its pain
