When you see it bare...

Updated on May 29, 2017

Sometimes its a wonder...

In waves of survival

Amazing minds that swivel

In paths drawn by creation

There lived little humans

Majestic, grand and dynamic

The rights and the wrongs

The dos and the don'ts

The success and the failure

They made formulas

And called them the answer

Then comes a better genius

He makes another

Little beings runs and keep running

In never ending circles

Finding success and happiness

Peace that brings abundance

You want peace but you keep trading

You have lost your bargain

For the force is winning

It comes free, why are you sweating

Remove the frills and you see it bare

It was always there and to you it stare

Look right there amidst your own maze

Success is yours to never chase

      Thanks John. Yes, we hardly stop to appreciate what we have and when we do, there are more than enough to be grateful about. I am quite tired of the chase, just want to live.

      A well written poem with a good underlying message. People often waste time chasing what they already have but don't recognise.
