The Ghosts in Your Cells
Between stimulus and response,
there is a space,
It allows you that split second of time
to use fair discretion in framing your reaction.
This great power
lets you decide if your next move
will be based on commitment or fear.
It will be your vehicle to express
virtuosity or synchronicity,
allowing your inner voice
to become morphed
from I can’t to I must.
All of this, in a mere flicker of time,
moving you happily and safely
and with ease,
along this moving sidewalk
we call our path in life.
