Stressing straining seeking stature
Questing others notice I matter
Wanting recognition a sense of fame
Winning at any cost a favored game

Compare accomplishments of others
Compete with sisters and brothers
Take on this take on that
Shout they notice where I’m at

One day wake up in wonder and ask
Why am I doing each lofty task
Moment I realize I am enough
Don’t have to persist in all that stuff

I am worthy deserve happiness
Not about doing about being ness
All my honored goals and positions
Does nothing for real statisticians

Driven by mother father husband wife
Real question “do I have a life?”
Happy is simple kindness warm laughter
Gemutlich secure each day after

Preparing fresh food being close to earth
Smileing companions provide rebirth
Each deserves their own bliss
You’re enough deserve happiness

God gifted nature and your presence
Authentic expression reflecting essence
That is the real gift you bring to earth
That pure expression is your real worth

What are you cultivating?

Do you have to do what you do to get what you want
or is there a more direct path?
