Stop and Start

A Poem by Victoria Lynn Hall

 When it stopped being enough
    to have enough
 It started to become
    too much
    for some
 And not enough 
    for others
 When we stopped rewarding givers
    over takers
 We started
    favoring the haters
 And condemning
    the lovers
 When we stopped seeing ourselves 
    as whole
 When we started believing 
    that power meant control
 When our faith in a natural order 
    was lost
 We crossed the border
    into chaos
 What would happen if we stopped striving
    and surrendered?
 If we could will ourselves still
    and learn the skill of staying tender?
 To stop looking and start finding in our hearts
    what we always have enough of
 To stop wanting and seeking and start
    giving and being

A self taught artist and creative entrepreneur, Victoria Lynn Hall lives in the Kansas City area with 4 spoiled cats. She believes in art and the magic of kindness.
