The Question - Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph

Peace of Mind -
If I had pursued at 20,
Where now would I have been?

Knowledge, skill and resources
Processing is based on greed
I think now at 66.

How do I get both?
Or do I prefer peace
Toanything else now?

Is there a way to remain silent,
Content, be in peace
And yet get skills and knowledge?

Does Nature, the butterflies,
The hawk and clouds
Live with trees like this?
