He said

” Be calm 
  Be peaceful
  Be aware “
He said to me ……
” Life is easy 
  Life is beautiful 
  Life is rich “
He said , ” believe me ” !
I was always on the edge
jittery tattery 
faltering and tripping
screaming and weeping 
” cool down ” he said
with a naughty smile 
sneaking out of his moustache 
spreading across his face
and comfort in his green eyes
I tried to adapt 
I tried to gather
I fell down and hurt ,
bruised knees
remind me of my tether ,
Better late than never
his peace caught on my soul 
his demeanour brushed on my whole 
now in control 
now nothing to troll
though balance and equations 
defying laws of physics 
Me with my ethics 
and He with his basics
” Be calm ,
  Be peaceful ,
  Be aware “
He said to me !

    Somewhat intriguing with a side order of disquiet. This might prove quite a challenging work for the reader to encounter given the uncertainess of the voice or its motivation.I was left with the impression that the voice had nothing good in mind for the object of his commands.
