One Thing You Must Believe


Enjoy your life today.
Thanksgiving is on the way.
They come and go so soon.
Look at the Harvest Moon.

Take a peaceful walk.
To beautiful nature talk.
Holidays come and go.
They come so fast you know.

Find joy in little things.
A little bird that sings.
Wake up! Enjoy today.
Only good things say.

The holiday it will leave.
One thing you must believe.
That joy comes from within.
It's always with you then.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We anticipate the holidays so much, and I am the main one. It's so easy to forget about today when we're so wrapped up in tomorrow. And then before we know it, that long-awaited holiday has come and gone. And then for a moment, the light seems to have gone out of our lives, and the joy with it. So create things in your life that give you that same kind of joy everyday, while you're anticipating a holiday.

    Especially as you grow older, years fly by, let alone the holidays. Creating poetry gives me that joy every day.

    Hi Jesus:
    Thanks for reading. For single people, depression comes just before the holidays. For everyone, it can often come immediately after. We can recapture that joy each day, with effort. (Report) Reply

    Holidays are the days of rest, recreation and
    vacation. These days usually are short and you
    don't know it's already gone. It is so right to create
    your own enjoyment. A deep and lovely thought.
    Really something we must believe. (Report) Reply
