Your Life With Tigers

Standard

When it seems as if
you have run out of choices,
tigers behind you
tigers ahead of you
and no safe place
in which to take refuge,
stop running from the tigers.
Sit in the middle of them,
allow them to approach.
Close your eyes,
breathe deeply,
remember that your peace
is in your own hands,
and relaxation is one slow breath away.
Peace is in here, in you.
If this is the last thing you know
in the last moment of your life with tigers,
this is a life well-lived.
