Happy in Misery


I am standing
in the middle of the road
surrounded by noise and chaos
but I do not know where to go.

You are sitting
in a perfect place:
on the outstretched arm
of a tree
that envelops you
with wisdom.

No one bothers you
but you seem so miserable.
The source of your unhappiness
I seem to not find.
You have it all;
what more do you desire?

I know what you mean
when you say
you are happy in your misery.
I might as well join you.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
