The Quiet within

This poem was sent to us as a gift from the poet, Yvonne Sievers, to whom we are deeply grateful.

It was delivered by a dear co-worker visiting Sydney. The poem speaks to our shared experience of these challenging times and offers a way through.


I search for the Quiet Within

The calmness that stills the rushing day

The peace that chases the chaos away

Let the quietness begin


In the stillness of my inner being

I search for forgiveness

I embrace compassion

I accept the will of the Gods


I find within myself

The strength of inner quiet

I find within myself

The strength to accept what is.

By Yvonne Sievers
