There are times when the day stays still
And you choose not be animated by the urgency of tasks,
High priority tasks,
Unprioritised tasks .
And you choose not to be intimidated
By aggressively charging news headlines,
Or the worry about some misfortune befalling you,
And that it is Friday the 13th .
And you yet choose to rise above the mundane and all the empty rhetoric,
Try so hard not to digress into the frenzy of life
But remain still and live for some moments,
A sentient being, a quiet being, a living thing.
