Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
The biggest challenge we may ever face
is to maintain a flow of happy thoughts
at each moment in profound grace
after untying all inner knots.
Like a shadow, body follows our mind
so we're as healthy as it let us be
while foods and meds combined
won't provide that magic key.
But if it was so easy to do
as it is to read in so many books
we would just follow every written cue
enjoying good health and some great looks.
The trouble is in our addicted insistence
to thwart any conscious intervention
coming at it with a big resistance
sabotaging our good intention.
So skilled to prevent and to spoil
while just fixated on amassing wealth
we spend our life roasting in our own oil
for, if happiness was easy, so would be health.
