The Flowers on My Path


Tip-toeing
Through life
Afraid to
Step on the
Flowers
Growing on
The path
Before me
I avoid
My own
Happiness and
Wilt to
The sorrow of
Mindful
Recognition that
I can’t save
Every
Flower if
I am to
Move
Forward and
Spread beauty
Under-foot by
Laying the
Way for
More
Beauty to
Grow.

Inside I am
The creator but
Sometimes to
Create
I must
Let go and
Surrender to
Starting
A new with
Beauty going
Beauty is
Renewed.

And walking with
Beauty not
Trying to
Avoid it.

Smiling at
The steps
I lay—
Understanding that
Beauty someday has
To fade but
The happiness of
Beauty is
Here to stay.

I am
Happy for
The flowers on
My path.

Growing in
Happiness as
I journey
Past.
