Center of Stillness

by Mark Weinrich

I don’t want a storm
named after me.
For I have often lived
with a whirlpool’s activity
when anger gathers force
and pulls others down.

There is no eye
within my storm,
no peace to pass,
just the turbulence,
the ego-drive of powering
my way through.

Lord, I’m tired of being
the middle of this mess.
In repentance, may I
humbly ask. Place me
in the center with You.
Where we can watch
the circles swirling out,
and I can experience
the calm with You.
