Line Break: ‘A Poem for Someone Who is Juggling Her Life’ by Rose Cook

photo-1452914793772-af331bf6e4b6.jpegThis is a poem for someone
who is juggling her life.
Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.

It needs repeating
over and over
to catch her attention
over and over,
as someone who is juggling her life
finds it difficult to hear.

Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.
Let it all fall sometimes.

Rose Cook is an English poet. This poem is from her collection Notes From a Bright Field, published in 2013.

  1. Beautiful. And a necessary reminder! I need to print this and read it first thing in the morning, before the madness of each day begins! Thank you for this :)
