Some say the goal in life is happiness,
but there are times in life where anything worth doing
will be stressful, involve pain, and make you feel
very different from the happyhappyjoyjoy state we profess to desire.
I say, find the things you find of value, even when they cause you pain.
Pursue those. For life is short, and nothing worth doing is done with eternal ease.
So, help us Lord.
but after working through all the highfalutin stuff,
I think my greatest desire
is to just be a decent human being,
holding hands with God
and walking down the seaside
into the Sun.
My front windshield is cracked,
has been for several months now.
Every now and again,
I have the money to fix it,
but end up spending the cash
on something else.
Yes, yes, we only have so many resources
I feel this a metaphor for something:
The world’s problems are vast and consuming,
and we can spend all our days chasing
after all kinds of things,
that seem good and productive at the time;
or, we can spend time fixing the windshields
of our lives.
Ah, yes. I can see clearly now.
The crack is gone.
