Discipline

Alison L. JamesPoetry

Chaos, unsynchronized, rolling, clashing,
Without rhythm or forethought,
Breaks backs and hearts,
Leaves debris in its wake.

Following design, pattern and focus
Weaves a tapestry of forces
To culminate in a point,
An achievable idea.

First in mind, then kept in heart,
The outer world begins to
Reflect dreams and wishes
Germinating within.

Change, discomfort, rearrangement
Of the old for the new,
Creates new worlds of
Harmony, balance and growth.

Discipline, Mother Nature’s ally,
Brings peace to discord,
Love to fear,
Order to chaos.
