Day 341 – Little Houses with Christmas Lights

Little houses with Christmas lights all in front
with a basketball hoop in each drive–
I walk the neighborhood where I live
and I know it’s so far beyond my reach

I don’t think I’m headed really anywhere soon
just standing in awe of the lights

But there must be meaning in an aimless path
just trying to make my bed
and drink enough water
my life must mean something too
in the in-between

I don’t think I’m headed really anywhere soon
just standing here in awe of life

There must be meaning here too
while I’m standing still

  1. I keep seeing friends’ babies and marriages and I have never related more to anything. Society sure makes you feel like you lag behind if you don’t do anything, I like to think that I’m enjoying my time, whether it means anything to them or not, it means something to me.

    1. Yes! My quest these days is to learn to be at peace when I can’t see what’s next. I had a false sense of comfort in predicting the future for far too long. It can be such a blow to our self esteem to lose the certainty we thought we had…
      Glad you can relate, friend. Makes me feel less alone 🙂
