God’s spiritual world is holding its breath,
Awaiting my “rebirth”-day!
You see I’ve been spiritually minded,
For some time now,
But truth be told…I’ve still been
Wishing beyond wish and hoping,
Beyond hope that things would one day,
Somehow, someway…magically go
But my very happiness depends now on
Me relinquishing these immature childhood,
Wishes and dreams.
Spiritual happiness means taking it all in…
Accepting all things as a gift,
Minus the labels, minus the judgments,
Minus my expectations…
Of how things should be, about what
When every inch of the Universe Is always
Loving me, before, during, and forever after,
If you walk around speedily,
With purpose in your gait,
And a serious look upon your face,
You may even convince yourself,
Of your importance.
Does sitting still,
In a relaxed and peaceful pose,
Prove that you,
Don’t matter much,
To the world?
Only your ego asks you to,
“Do the math.”
Of much greater worth,
Than happiness or substance.
This place with many,
Neither happy, loved or free,
Away from here,
Won’t You please take me!
I’m tired of the pain that surrounds,
Dear Lord, why must this be?
When I long for sunny faces,
Of singers crooning,
Poet’s minds wandering,
Senior citizens meandering,
No need for pandering,
No more bickering!
Days of joy,
For future generations,
This poet’s letter is
