Do Not Expect Much In Life - Poem by RIC BASTASA

to be happy
only be ready with what life is giving you
do not demand much
do not look for what is not there
take what is available
love when love is there
when nothing seems to go right
forget it
settle, stay, be still
nothing to argue
we thrive only with what is given us
nothing to grab
for there is always a space reserved for us
in the parking lot
for free
if there is no food
why not enjoy the air and the sea
and the birds in the air
and the scenery of mountains wearing snow caps
and the river singing
a song for you
mind you
you are loved and cared for
like the sparrows without specific address
in the sky
take care
good luck
enjoy the supply of life
while it lasts
