Poetry: Living with Values


For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my searching.


While I try to relax

in these few minutes of peace

putting things in perspective

and renewing life’s lease.

In a world that is aggressive

people tunneling to the top

I’ve finally now realized

that all aggression must stop.

The values that I have

are too important  to me

Patience, Faith, and Trust

not to mention Honesty.

Its too easy  for me to forget one

when I get caught  up in life’s stream

getting  swept up in the current

well to me that’s how it seems.

But, I’m going to try

at paddling harder than before

making myself smile

and myself all the more.

Remaining Honest and Content

that’s all I want to do

I know it will be hard

but not if there is you.

So smile  away your troubles

and live a life that’s free

Appreciate  living this life

and the miracle of WE.
