Making It Simple: A Poem
Simplicity of living rarely forgives
complicating matters beyond repair
it's like a glitch in brain that deceives
causing us all that trouble and despair.
We think way too much about ordinary stuff
beating around bush instead of simply doing
then problems compile and many get tough
and on some of big bites we are still chewing.
Simplicity cures all diseases of thinking
it picks out details that matter the most
all else is an excess of a wrong linking
giving nothing to life for a good boast.
Ignoring anything out of our control
leaves us with the pure joy of living
makes our life organized and whole
with a relief that's beyond believing.
One thing at a time and done with care
lines everything down into a single file
then even when life may look unfair
we can do it all with simple smile.
