‘Story’ – a Poem by Stevie Wills.

Did you hear  

in a whisper

a breath

a moment of stillness 

physical 

mental 

spiritual stillness 

in a space between thoughts 

did you hear 

the deeper story? 

 

Deeper than any criticism 

definition  

opinion 

preconception 

hesitation 

towards self  

towards others. 

 

Sacred 

souls, sacred. 

 

Connected 

all humanity connected 

through all that is humanity 

for its air we breath 

it’s blood we bleed 

we bleed humanity 

we bleed vulnerability. 

 

Love is the blood of the earth 

the tide of the oceans 

speaking wisdom  

declaring in us 

through us 

the sacred 

the divine 

breathe in us 

write in us 

the deeper story 

sacredness abiding 

connecting us.
