A solitary statue in the busy city centre
the waratah stands tall, a lone sentinel

If we could strive to be similar
watchful, secure and comfortable

When noise and turmoil is all about
solid, strong, centred and steady

For if too distracted
or riddled with dis-ease

We lose our resilience and focus
blown here or erupting there

Knowing our worth and purpose
anchors us when times are tough

Ease with solitude or company
brings balance, ease and security
