At times he closes both his eyes
holds his breath in, so thoughts can fly,
tries hard to dominate his mind,
but memories linger behind.
In crowds, but always feels alone,
dubious when kind acts are shown.
Expects sincere hearts to be blown,
loud inner doubts is all he knows.
Decisions lead to great regret,
throws his hands up, tries to forget.
Each endless day always resets,
brightens the view as life offsets.
Grasps inner strength so turmoil goes,
inhales pure peace, feel as it flows.
He swallows time, to take life slow,
appreciation swiftly grows.
Past lessons guide and pave the way,
his heart beats to words wise chants say.
He now sees life as a grand play,
savors moments so visions stay.
Holds everyday, lets go each night,
stays positive, expands insight.
Searches within to find warm light,
shares it with all so joys shine bright.
