Smell the Roses
Got your flame snuffed from wind’s stride
and weary from carrying wicker baskets
weighed with anxiety of a life of strife?
Got stuck between a rock and a hard place
and interred under debris of miss-aims
stacked high, obscuring the havens?
Got lost as a tern in despair, so far from stead
and shivering endlessly from the cold and wet,
every nook and cranny: loneliness, dread?
Got a hectic, restless life: acquiring all that’s fleeting
and then betrayed, neglected then ostracized
misunderstood or under-appreciated?
Rolling stones don’t ever gather any birds in hand.
Possessions, a true life never can grant.
So, while busy making a living, remember:
life is for living!
BUY the TIME to SMELL THE ROSES!
