Poems of the Month- Within these four walls

Starry night sky background. White writing says Withing these four walls, mindfully Evie, poems of the month.

This week’s Wednesday Wisdom is a special edition. Instead of a quote, I’ve picked one of my favourite poems from Mindfully Evie’s book Within These Four Walls, in honour of ME awareness week and month.

Peace is Everywhere

There will be times

when things work out for you,

and there will be times

when you love where you are,

and there will be times

when you can’t wait to get away from here.

But know this:

whatever is happening to you,

wherever you are,

however you feel about it,

there is always peace

to be unearthed

and a life to be lived,

waiting here

for you.

Evie has Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and chronic Lyme disease. Whilst she was bedbound and housebound Evie wrote about her experiences and the lessons she learned during this time. You can find out more about her here.

Many people across the globe have resonated with Evies work, both those who are chronically ill and those who are not. Evie’s belief that despite all the suffering, there is always happiness to be created, peace to be unearthed, and a life to be lived is one that relates to us all.

You can purchase the book via Evie’s website or Amazon. You can also follow her on Instagram and Facebook.
