I Won’t Wait


I won’t wait for happiness,
I will have it now…
as I listen to the wind
rustling the maple tree leaves
turning from green to red,
as I pick up the toys
strewn everywhere
in this messy house
and ready my children for bed,
as I contemplate this life breath
moving in and out
nourishing me without a thought,
as I contemplate the many things I have
that could never be bought.
Only a fool believes
that happiness is somewhere out there.
Touch your heart, feel its steady rhythm,
a sacred drum keeping perfect pace
as you sing the song of your life.
If joy isn’t now here,
then it is nowhere.

  1. ‘Obstacles don’t block our path, they are the path’. I will continue trying to see, appreciate and be grateful for the whole path rather than being frustrated by the obstacles along the way. Thank you for your reminders. X
