"Find Peace"

in peace •  last year 


“It is very simple to be happy, but it is very difficult to be simple.”
Rabindranath Tagore

How profoundly simple is this?
For the most part, we have all
We need to live, to live
Simply and in accepting this, to be

Yet, we continually strive and struggle and over
Complicate our lives, struggling to achieve things we
Don’t need.
In the process we lose our health and
We push the happiness we seek away,
Always farther.

I know, we can’t just sit on a bank
And stare at our navels, and true, we DO
Have to strive to fill the requirements
Of our world, our
Businesses and Jobs.

Within those constraints,
If you tend the
“Garden in Your own Heart",
You Can Find Peace.

“Find Peace”
