With Ease, It Isn't


With ease,
It isn't
To confront any task and complete those tests.
And with wishes to succeed,
Inspite of needing more rest with less of it to get.
While one faces opposition and impossible obstacles,
To refuse the giving of them attention...
Although close they are to touch one's nose.

With ease it seems...
But it really isn't.
To be accessible with it believed,
That someone with time for others to give...
Have nothing else to do,
To prove a significance with proven choices they choose...
With unrelenting intention meant.
Since no one ever mentions them to be of selfishness.

It becomes most difficult to appear not to have needs.
In environments in which people expect,
To be pleased regardless of whom they neglect.
Or promote the value of giving others respect!

With ease,
It isn't
To confront any task and complete those tests.
And with wishes to succeed,
Inspite of needing more rest with less of it to get.
While one faces opposition and impossible obstacles,
To refuse the giving of them attention...
Although close they are to touch one's nose.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
