POEMS: “A simple life” by Margaret Jang


“A Simple Life”


Since time flies by terribly fast,
take a moment, to recall your past.
When you were young and really free,
is this the way you would rather be?

Too often we take our lives for granted,
forgetting about seeds we planted.
Becoming caught in the routine of living,
and forgetting about the art of just giving.

If you stop for a moment and think back,
when you didn’t worry about figures or facts.
To a time you could skate on a frozen lake,
or just lay under the sunlight to bake.

Remember times when you went fishing,
and spent the afternoon just wishing.
That you would catch one for dinner,
big or small, you’d still be a winner!

Do you remember the dream you once had,
for a simple life – happy not sad?
So what on earth happened to this,
where is this life of utter bliss?

Well, it’s still waiting to be discovered,
which you have a chance to still uncover.
So take some time to stop and relax,
then just let go and really detach.

As stress and worries are fully released,
your pain and discomfort will soon cease.
Then as you enter a more peaceful state,
just remember that it’s never too late!
