We Create Our Own Happiness

image

Let’s take the sun and leave
the rain for other minds.
Let the light go straight
to the center of our brains.
Linger on the green grass
of a happier life. Home free,
but not homeless.
Let’s live in the world
inside of us where nothing can be lost.
Someplace where it’s always autumn and
there are plenty of leaves to break our fall.
Just you and me where’s there’s no them or they.
Showing the hollowed out existence,
the slamming screen door.
No longer waiting on the light
to save us but shining our
own brilliance. Knowing
if the light ever finds us,
we’ll light its way.

  1. Let the light go straight
    to the center of our brains.
    Linger on the green grass
    of a happier life. Home free,
    but not homeless.
    Letโ€™s live in the world
    inside of us where nothing can be lost.
    Someplace where itโ€™s always autumn and
    there are plenty of leaves to break our fall.
    Just you and me whereโ€™s thereโ€™s no them or they. – great lines.

    The whole piece was pretty flawless and the screen door line, im not sure I can explain it, but it seemed perfect, the line and the image. Fantastic poetry Tosha โ˜บ

  2. I love this poem, it really builds one up, so yes let’s take the sunshine and leave the rain! I love the Cream, what memories it brings back from my youth, and it fitted in so well with the poem.
