If Life Were That Simple

Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.

if-life-were-that-simple

Injustice free, equal freedom of opinion

Following your heart without being a minion


Living and loving with no weeping or sorrow

Ingenious ideas consistently follow

Fear or famine has no worth even in every spiritual rebirth

Evil or criminal would never walk this earth


Where I want to be

Eloquent and expressive never oppressive

Respecting all genuinely, no animosity

Each their own unlimited rich’s, never ever want to hear of poverty


Tell me I look great in anything I attire

Hatred causes to conspire

Appreciate and admire

Travel whenever I aspire


Sharing is caring, no more suffering

Infinite blessing to all life, remember to always be humbly forgiving

Money too materialistic, we need to be brought back to basics

Profound and asics

Lending a helping hand, no longer pretending

Every story has a happy ending

You may say, i'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...

Your thoughts are so n'sync to the write, I love your idea and have added the link.

The song has been identified by my dear friend Bill and fits the piece perfectly.

God bless, take care and be safe always.

Lovely reflections! It reminds me of John Lennon's song "Imagine." It is an ideal worth working for, my friend.

Blessings to you always

Hi Rajan,

I agree humankind has complicated purity, humility, beauty and kind that did not require disruption. The change has made us re-evaluate a lot in life and how we move forward.

Appreciate your comments

Keep well, take care and be safe

My good friend Lorna

I feel a great sense of appreciation to the flow to your wonderful and inspiring words.

We shall continue to believe going forward more and more stories will be a happy ending.

My wonderful Ruby,

You right its reality and we need to rise above

Your insightful essence to life is profound, appreciate your words of wisdom always.

Keep well, take care and be safe

A simple life complicated and messed up by us... humans. Today life is teaching us once again to get down to being simple and basic.

Lorna Lamon on April 10, 2020:

A wonderful poem Mitara and your last verse really spoke to me. I am hoping that when we get through this crisis we will all have a different outlook on life. Let us hope that as you have so beautifully described it - 'Every story has a happy ending'. Take care my poet.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 09, 2020:

Life can be complicated, it's up to us whether we succumb or rise above it and soar. If life were simple like it used to be, the small things, like a home, a nice car, our family, a nice paying job would make us content, but we live with fear in a world of discontent, wanting more and more. Thought provoking poetry!

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on April 09, 2020:

Agree with your sentiments, instead of simplifying humans are the ones that further complicate.

Doesn't help the cause at all, therefore one can say "If only"

Wish with the snap of a finger, it could come true.

Let's all make that wish the next time we see a falling or shooting star...

Appreciate your comment Margaret

Keep well, take care and be safe

Margaret Pan from Athens on April 09, 2020:

Life is never simple. However, we as humans can try to simplify things- instead, we unfortunately are the ones who complicate them even more. Nice piece of work Mitara, keep up the good work and take care!

A very well-written acrostic poem, Mitara. Good message within as well.

I wish it were that simple.

Nice write.

I like the style spelling out a message with each first letter of every line.
