A Moment

Can we just chill for a moment please?

Let go of our burdens big, our troubles tall
Close our eyes for a moment
Before the moment’s gone.

Just chill for a moment please.

Take the load off our shoulders
Take a deep breath to breathe
Feel the good air slide in
And your worries exhale out

Chill for a moment please.

To put our worries down
And our feet up

For a moment please.

And remember that
Life is less about what we have to lift
And more about what we find uplifting

A moment.



It’ was one interesting day that started nor ended as expected. A moment was needed.

  1. Can we just chill for a moment please?

    Your use of repetition helped me “chill”
    I have been stressed out, so many thoughts in my head at the same time. After reading your poem through several times, I felt calmer.
    Now I will go and lift my feet up and put my worries down.
    Thank you for this.

    And more about what we find uplifting”

  2. I feel myself breathing out and breathing in slower as I read your poem. We do need to find time in our life to chill for a while each day.

  3. I think I need to read this poem every day! The diminishing repetition (is that the official name for it?) works very well here, just like lessening our burden, you can almost feel the worries slipping away. And I like the clever puns – put our feet up, our worries down and lifting up and uplifting. Very nice!

  4. Here’s why I’m smiling. I’m smiling because my sister-in-law and I communicate when we’re overwhelmed by telling each other “I need to take a moment.” Our moment-taking has strengthened and upheld us for over two decades. You better be sure I’m going to send this poem her way. ❤

So? What do you think?
