AGING in the USA

20200217_171020

When does it end?

or should I say when does the happiness begin?

I yearn for a world where you can feel

like you belong

I yearn for a world where you can feel

like you have a purpose

I used to think that one day

everything would be’fixed’

and all the pain would go away

I used to believe that one day

this weight would be lifted and

I would be able to exhale

but…

I am older, wiser, and a skeptic

but I am more at peace now because

I have come to the realization

that there is no Utopia

I have come to realize

there are no perfect relationships

I have come to realize

That your true task

is finding an inner peace

by any means necessary

(Minus drugs, already tried that one)

you have to believe in whatever

gets you through the day

whether its Religion, family and or

a love for Country?

My way of living has evolved

by an acceptance that this

is a hard road to take

but breath and laugh

to your heart’s content

because one day it will subside

and it won’t be that serious anymore
