Simple Life - Poem by Sandra Martyres

Life is a beautiful dream
Though it may not always so seem
Look at the flowers that surround us
They appear and disappear without a fuss
As do the birds in the sky
They just continue as long as they can to fly
I watch in awe as the cows lazily graze
They are in no hurry to reach fields of maize
The juicy grass is good enough
They are not chasing after better stuff
It is only we who are not satisfied
Until we have all life's luxuries tried
We go far and wide in search of fun
And when we face problems we just run
This is a lesson we need to learn
From lesser creatures how to earn
Happiness from the simple things in life
Leaving aside complexities and strife

    Great thoughts and it even came with a rhyme. I totally agree. We should all watch children: when young they are so satisfied with anything..what makes them happier than a cardboard box that their imaginations can turn into anything they do want..(smile) (Report)Reply
