Y// Life 's Not Easy But Beautiful - Poem by Aufie Zophy

Anxiety, nervous tension
Adrenaline running in veins
Stress seems the only dimension
Impossible to keep it in reins

Some storms indeed come our way
Peak winds we have to endure
Hurricanes however, not long do they stay
How to recover, where is the cure

As the strength of the wind slows
We can change the focus of mind
Pretty flowers can get us out of the lows
A forest, a sunset, a friend who is kind

Life is most of the time not easy
But if we do look for beauty
Stress will most likely ease
Mind may come to peace

Topic(s) of this poem: beauty, stress

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Just yesterday I went through a real storm of stress at work.
But as soon as the winds settled a bit, I managed to change focus
and an hour later or less, I was resuming work in a reasonably good mood.

If you think this poem is a bit too didactic or too much logic and void of poetic feelings, you may be right. Still, I hope you can enjoy it as a simple rhyme with some wisdom in it.

    You are right, if we only look something only for it will always bold as what we believe...
    but when we open ourselves to see the whole process, we may find that life is beautiful as more than
    a cause it bring, it has caused many good things from a particular event.. the beauty is not come direct as always but they may come indirectly...we have to see it as hidden layes that hidden from our eyes and thought...if we want to see.. we must open ourselves to it...a beautiful poem Hans, it is a beautiful thought from you
