A Word From The Wise


Make your fun and happiness
Where ever you are.
Don't let cities and places make you,
Take you afar.
Make your space what you want it to be,
And be free.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was reading recently the tragic story of the life of Abigail Folger, and how she moved from coast to coast, searching for meaning and happiness in life. Sometimes we think we'll be happy in another town, another city, another state. It's possible, but maybe, just maybe we're not living fully who we really are, in the place from which we are always wanting to escape.

    Physically we can move anywhere, but within, our beings and spirits are always with us. That is where we are to find the happiness, meaning, and purpose of our lives. If it's not there, we have only our attitudes to blame for our
    unhappiness. (Report) Reply

    A nice poem about contentment. Moving around all about
    town just to find peace is not always the solution. True peace
    comes from accepting the person that you are and not what
    others try to mold you to be. Very inspiring Sandi. (Report) Reply

    @Peter Mamara
    Funny you should say that. On a past job many, many years ago, I was accused, by my boss, of being philosophical in some writing that I'd done. Probably a letter of some sort. Anyway, though I didn't see anything wrong with what I'd expressed, his comment left me feeling lacking in some way. I never understood what was wrong with being philosophical, except that maybe it had no place in the business world. But then, in all the jobs I had in the business world, I never fitted in anyway :) I'm honored by your comment. Thank you very much. (Report) Reply
