Simple Lives

Simple Lives

Simple lives can bring such joy
That complications can destroy
Take time when choosing how to live
A gift we have, so what to give?

The daily message we receive
Might not be helpful, try to believe
The media and the voices tell
Of grim despair, a living hell

Yet what’s beyond the tales of doom?
In our small lives there must be room
For joyful times and kindly deeds
Prepare the future with these seeds

For all will grow from here and now
A change of heart we should allow
Stay open-minded, much arrives
When happy with our simple lives
