Eyes up, mind Up
Your life can be yours
just like the DNA
you were born with.
What will you keep
the same this year,
your furniture arrangement,
your clothing style,
the way you treat your friends.
Do you need to change anything?
Will your life change without your permission?
Are you ready?
Do you want to control your life,
like a millwheel controls water.
Can you handle allowing
something out of your control
yet having the patience
to wait to do your part.
Having an open mind
to get to know someone you don’t.
The circle loves to ostracize something different.
There is always something to learn,
like how to cook that Cornish hen,
or what has that person done in their life
that is different from everyone else’s.
Here’s to the ones who brave to be different.
Here’s to the ones that see life new every day.
Never ask three major favor’s from a person
that saves you a lot of money and might inconvenience
them yet they are willing to be hospitable on
very short notice.
Strange to make them pay for the lunch or dinner,
and not even bring them a bottle of wine
or treats, or something.
It is just bad manners.
Are you looking for power
when there really is none, anywhere.
Have you realized we are powerless
yet we have to keep smiling anyway?
Sitting on the porch
sipping a cup of coffee
watching the mountains
is still an amazing feeling.
