Thought this would help since we all seem to be having a tough week. It is one of my favorite "go to" poems to make me feel better.
I hope it makes someone else feel better also.

CUTTING LOOSE by William Stafford

Sometimes from sorrow, for no reason,
you sing. For no reason, you accept
the way of being lost, cutting loose from
all else and electing a world
where you go where you want to.

Arbitrary, sound comes, a reminder
that a steady center is holding
all else. If you listen, that sound
will tell where it is, and you
can slide your way past trouble.

Certain twisted monsters
always bar the path - but that's when
you get going best, glad to be
lost, learning how real it is
here on the earth, again and again. cool
Be still and know there is Peace.

Kabir says: "Student tell me, what is God? He is the breath inside the breath". from the poem Breath.
