FIND A BETTER WAY

You try and find your center
You strive for balance everyday
Your goal to remain focused
Don’t let stress get in the way.

The pain, the daily struggle
Gets harder, though you try
Looking for the answers
Always asking…why?

Acceptance …. your daily mantra
Passing judgement…. your nemesis
You have your own demons to worry about
Theirs are none of your business.

Clear your mind of clutter
Your house and workplace, too
Straighten out the chaos
Be a better you.

Acts of random kindness
Give you a feeling of self worth
Broaden your horizons
Find your purpose on this earth.

You’re but a tiny speck of sand
On the beach, upon the shore
You’re not the center of the universe
Stop expecting more.

Step back and gain perspective
The grass isn’t greener on the other side
Learn to count your blessings
Stop giving into pride.

The seven sins are deadly
There to tempt and tantalize
You have to work much harder
Wake up and realize.

Time is passing by so quickly
Make the most of everyday
Do your best to ease your mind
To find a better way.
