    I seek a moment of quiet
    A place where alone meets
    Serene so that I can seek
    The face of my Father;

    I need to step away from
    Today in it’s original form
    So that I can release the past
    To prepare for tomorrow;

    I learned that if I stare at NOW
    I am really looking at WAS
    And will never find the WILL
    To walk towards what WILL BE;

    So I venture towards the rest
    Where I walk with deafened ears
    And blinded eyes in order to be
    Led and not be a leader for now;

    But this is just for the moment
    For I cannot grow into the one
    Whom the gardener has envisioned
    If don’t take a moment to be watered;

    Love the way you brought this, easy to stay stagnant if we don't take care.
