Wise Woman Sonnet
I railed against the longings of my soul,
which yearned for freedom, joy and a light heart.
Believing all the lies my culture told –
“You must always be busy, act real smart.”
Then, though I tried to be the same as them –
the ones who made the rules and held the gate,
My heart found joy in paint and words and Zen.
The quest for busy led me to self hate.
So, to my heart a promise strong was made.
To find what makes me happy and that choose.
Compassion for myself I would now trade
for busyness and ways to self abuse.
Contentment can endure throughout the years,
Your joy is found in ashes of your fears.
