Take a walk!
Sometimes life is difficult
As arrogance and ignorance spill from the TV screen,
As plots are made that will pamper the rich
And crush the poor
As “leaders” call for us to take away health care
And put people at risk of death,
So they can use that money to create more weapons that kill people
Sometimes life makes my brain hurt
And my heart to
But sometimes I think I might make life way too difficult
I plot and plan and seek to chart my journey to....
well, I am not sure where!
I certainly don't get there.
Perhaps what I really need to do is go for a walk
get some fresh air
try to smile
perhaps what I really need to do is just
just walk along the road in the frozen morning
admiring the white glittering beauty
Maybe just need to walk the through the day
as if I am walking joyfully through the woods
seeing what there is to be seen
who there is to be seen
Perhaps it is time to just
and read a book,
and have a cup of coffee with a friend
Perhaps it is time to pet the cat
Feed the horses,
"and whisper "I love you! I love you! to the whole made world" (Hafiz)
perhaps it is time to simply take a walk
and let tenderness
pour from my heart
perhaps it is time to take a walk!
