Finding The Joy Within
As I clumsily meander through daily life,
I realize that my joy
Is forever being compromised
by outside influences,
Frequently causing imbalance
And hurt feelings.
Wouldn't it be lovely
To be impervious to pain and suffering?
To remember that our joy lies within our hearts,
A sacred place of love and understanding
That denies entry to fear, jealousy, anger or greed.
A place that accepts the imperfect world
Without responding personally to its negativity.
I practice going within
And saturating my spirit with this
Strengthening my resolve to make
Finding my joy within
One of my truest life's lessons.
