Just to Be

This was written quite a long time ago, but seemed fitting for this day and age and the busy days of holiday preparations.  I am linking this over at One Shot Wednesday.  Hope you all enjoy.

Just to Be

I look around me now,
As I sit and wonder how,
Each day I look to find the new,
But all I can want, is free and true...

I look around to feel,
As I sit the free is real,
Each day I look to find the way,
But all I can want, is through the day...

I look around me now,
As I sit and wonder how,
Each day I look to find the why,
But all I can want, is to see sky...

I look around to feel,
As I sit the free is real,
Each day I look to find the sun,
But all I can want, is to have won...

I look around me now,
As I sit and wonder how,
Each day I look to find the me,
But all I can want, is just to be...

I look around to feel,
As I sit the free is real,
Each day I look to find the me,
But all I can want, is just to be!

We ask for so many things... but eventually, what we really need is just to be ourselves.. the one person we CANNOT lie to!
A lovely and thought provoking One Shot, Reflections! This poem perfectly goes with your pen name :)
Oh, and by the way, I totally dig those rhymes!!

I really like the repetetive line that wraps the stanza so nicely..."But all I can want..."

The simple things "to see the sky" or "just to be"
reveal the full beauty of life, those things money cannot buy.

Well done and thought provoking. Thanks.

Thanks also for paying a visit to my site!
