A Clear Path To Happiness

A clear path to happiness
But where do we go from here
Tired & weary from toilsome tasks
Self loathing; the harbinger of fear
But there’s always the simple life
Cherishing each blessing bestowed
Smiling each morning with gratitude
Embracing & not dreading your load
Taking it up again with the sun
Another day to provide what you reap
Responsibility can be a small miracle
Reflecting the love that you keep

Do You Remember When Promises Meant Something

Do you remember when promises meant something
The honor required of citizens in society’s threads
The oaths that never had to be sworn to back then
Gentlemen knew their obligations without lingering dread

Watching Waves Ride Up To The Railing

Watching waves ride up to the railing
White caps at each & every rise
The boat shaking under your feet
Feeling dread well up inside your eyes
Careful to step away from the edge
Never been this close to the absolute
Those merciless swells keep rolling
Only you can keep the steel under your boot
