Life Is


many of us
want to feel better
we search for
something
someone

when it doesn't work
we look for enlightenment
hoping
for permanent bliss
no more pain
big love

when stories arise
and swirl into solids
we think we've lost
something
we always are

peace needs no
happiness
joy doesn't discriminate
against sadness

this is the embrace
of all
including what we
don't like and
don't want and
try to push away

we can't push away life
it is fresher than
waking up

while we're looking for
a better time

life is

beating our hearts
gently
lovingly
whispering

"this"
