Life is changing your password
from freespirit to funspirit
it is being settled like sludge
of dying wishes
that shallows each passing day
Life can be exciting little kicks
from within your belly that fail to affirm you
life is being woken up one Sunday morning
by kisses of a child
and missing your own mother
life is what happens
when a finicky friend
lets you order at the restaurant
to make you feel better
Life arrives at some unremarkable instant
and leaves you weeping
as you climb the stairs home.
Life is the art of wondering
without really caring…
Where is it that successful people reach
when they succeed?
Life is making a little ritual speech
addressed to yourself, every now and then
and going on.
