“THIS LIFE OWES YOU SOME JOY!” a poem SAT – 11/10/18
There-are so-many-“attachments” in this life! (pause) Just hanging-hanging-on!
Why-not-RELAX your hand a bit, for-perhaps a brand new dawn,
OF AWARENESS, perhaps-confined, within your palms a-grasping;
Release? Relax! Rest-A-Moment (pause) from-all-that bitter clasping!
Is THIS so good? This SYMPHONY!? That IT – deserves bear-hugs?
The bears, perhaps, would NOT agree – especially-as-bear-rugs!
To hang-around-here AND BE SO TIGHT – Pray tell! What’s (so) important,
About this dream – It’s-”GOOD”-it’s-”BAD”- I really think we o-r-tn’t,
Take-staying-here-so-serious(ly), OUR LIFE DOES N O T DEPEND,
On our concern to be-around As-if this-is-THE-LIVING-END!!
Yes, I-know – that fear – compels us – to hold-on-pretty-tight,
But other-adventures-are-likely-in-store IF we’d perceive a-right!
So, although-THE-MISERY’S clear, I do NOT recommend,
Just ending, yes, just-ending – just-because you’d-like-to-put-an-end:
No! No! We-don’t-care-much-for-quitters, UNLESS THINGS BE SO HARD,
That they’re just SUCK-Y ALL THE TIME – We-all-need a little nard,*
For, without some pleasantries within the day, what-use-is-existence here?
IF things suck OFTEN – too-too-often – WE-can-just-let-go, my Dear,
And-see-where-we-fall! Might-be-in-bed! You’re-beside-your-No.-1-Fan!
In BED, warm and soft – touching you! I could-be – your LOVING MAN!
- a sweet-smelling ointment, one of those little pleasures in life that would be nice to have now and again!
