Who am I and what is going on

Choices

Up and down

Round and round

Life is one crazy merry go round

Right and wrong

Good and bad

So many choices to be made

How do we know

Which path to take

How to decide what is right for us

What if we made a different choice

What outcome would result

There is no easy answer

No definitive right or wrong

We can only trust and hope

That we’ll make the wisest choice.

Here I am

Here I am, right here, always

Things don’t change, not much

Life goes on pretty much the same

Oh yes, things happen, there are events

I go through them, and that’s it

Some events make me happy for the moment

Some events make me sad or nervous or angry

But they are just events and they pass

Always

What I am is inside me

What I am is what I do

What I am is how I feel

And for today

I can say

I am OK

Up and down

Round and round

Spinning, spinning, spinning

Life is full of twist and turns

Struggles, grief and pain

Time to stop the whirling top

And find a resting place

Somewhere quiet, peaceful; ‘sigh’

Where is this secret place?

While some folks seem to know it well

I’ve lost my way it seems

I know it isn’t far away

But it’s evading me

Time to stop the whirling top

And find my resting place

Birdsong

River flowing

Birds singing

Nature’s perfect music

Wind rustling

Sun shining

Couldn’t ask for more

What are the birds saying

They sound so happy and playful

Soaring through the air

Carefree and graceful

In my next life

I want to be a bird
