My Joy. {Poem}

Matthew Wiebe/Unsplash

I want to live in joy.

In this “i am” of enlightenment I lose my fight, my sight of what I want to do with this life.

I’m with you, I’m agreeing,
mind at ease, I’m receiving,
but wonder if thoughts are really so deceiving.

Is it so wrong to be thinking sweetly believing that there is life to be lived?

Can your spirit be driven by this love you have found in your true sense of self this freedom, this wealth—

abundant, and oh, isn’t it intimate…what will you do with it?

Let the sun touch your skin and walk blooming lotus.
Plant seeds, kiss the earth,
give thanks cast to the wind.

Give in to the ocean.

Give up fleeting emotion—

Feel it and leave it,

Look to your heart to believe it,

Trust what is true

to your sense of you.

Think if you wish,

not to control or convince you,

but with curious freedom,

to listen in and move

from your heart, it’s your home,
bring love when you come,
bring love where you go.

This is my joy, my prayer, and my poem.
