Waiting

After sleeping what do we do the most

Waiting, I think

πŸŒ‘

We wait for love

We wait for happiness

We wait for the mundane

πŸŒ‘

Too much time is spent

Waiting for something

πŸŒ‘

Waiting I think

Needs to wait

Temporal

What do we seek

Peace, happiness, harmony

Wealth, fame, power

For some it’s the latter

For others it’s the former

πŸŒ‘

One path leads to temporal contentment

The other to oneness of the heart

πŸŒ‘

For all of us

The choice is our own

River

What is my faith

A question to which

there is no answer

πŸŒ‘

My faith is within

Cannot be expressed

Cannot be quantified

πŸŒ‘

It flows like a river

Underlying principles

though I have

πŸŒ‘

Love

Compassion

Kindness

πŸŒ‘

But mostly being

true to myself

True

We’ve never tried to fit in

It’s a battle

We don’t want to win

πŸŒ‘

To be the same

is not us

We don’t play that game

πŸŒ‘

We are given many names

But we are not

in figurative chains

πŸŒ‘

We are happy as ourselves

True to who we are

Whilst others can keep to themselves

Here And There

A frantic rush

Like a busted flush

Is all we seem to do

πŸŒ‘

Never time to pause

To give applause

And catch our breath

πŸŒ‘

Non stop here and there

Looking longingly at the chair

Is what we do

πŸŒ‘

Sometimes we stop and think

This rushing is going to push us to the brink

Then off we go

πŸŒ‘

Rushing and going nowhere

Rather than stopping and getting somewhere

Is what we do
