for the world

my heart hurts for the world
for the earth
for beings
for all that has life

there is so much
that is disordered
so many systems 

i can only be quiet
inwardly quiet
outwardly quiet
still and waiting 

until I hear
the heartbeat
at the center
of everything

the first
the last
my only
