the buoyant one
may dip beneath the water
but always rises

there is balance
in patience
releasing expectations
allow your imperfect self to be

if we listen to our feelings
and we are honest
we feel the dissatisfaction
and the misery of prolonged indulgence

your body and your being
aches for purpose
but all the same can be exhausted

all the contradictory needs of
rest and play and purpose
cannot be satisfied at once

we cannot but err so listen
listen to the murmurs of the heart
the stirrings of muscle fiber

listen and let be
allow yourself to change like seasons
release yourself from springtime image

happiness is a highlight
which rendered as ubiquitous wallpaper
is nauseating and disorienting
