Make Your Life Your Own
I truly hope you're feeling well
in this life that you are making.
For happiness is out there
but you have to do the taking.
Despite what this world throws at you
always wear a giant smile.
And if you're feeling tired
know it's time to rest awhile.
Look for the joy around you
because my friends it's there.
When you feel polluted
go and find some fresher air.
In the mountains or the woodlands
or out there by the sea.
Surround yourself with loving people
who will fill your heart with glee.
Like my good pal Jeff
you must think outside the box.
And even if you're dying
face it brave like Johnny Fox.
There are no guarantees in life
and your time here is on loan.
But you can find your happiness
as you make your life your own!

I wrote this today at 4:41 AM when awake and still thinking about Johnny Fox's demise and how he faced it with a smile. If you don't know who he was and wish to, please read about Johnny in my poem called "Something Most Fine". The Jeff I refer to here is my old college roommate and close friend. He's still teaching Creativity and Mindfulness Training. These two people are both inspirations to me in facing life with courage, humor and love. And that friends is where this poem came from! Best of luck in life to all of you!
