I've been surprised at how many comments on my recent posts mentioned how much of myself I share on this blog, and how happy I seem to be. Here I go sharing again, but the truth is I'm happy only some of the time. I'm unhappy about a few things I can't seem to work out and/or integrate into my daily life. I'm working hard on patience, acceptance and temperance.
Lest I mislead because I try to be optimistic or present a false picture, here's a report from the interior ministry:
I cannot think of a thing to say
Even this rhyme is fading away
So I'll leave it for now that as of today
I'm trying to keep forlorn-ness at bay
Sometimes I'm fine, sometimes I'm not
I'd be more morose if I wouldn't get caught
The road to happiness can get kind of hot
I hope I'm learning what's here to be taught
Please don' t ask me to change or explain
It's enough that I'm working so hard to maintain
If you listen too closely you'll hear me complain
So please bear with me while I change travel lanes.
And if I were a magician, I'd pull from my sleeve
This hope for the future I want to believe.
