I worried a lot. Will the garden grow, will the rivers
flow in the right direction, will the earth turn
as it was taught, and if not how shall
I correct it?
Was I right, was I wrong, will I be forgiven,
can I do better?
Will I ever be able to sing, even the sparrows
can do it and I am, well,
Is my eyesight fading or am I just imagining it,
am I going to get rheumatism,
Finally, I saw that worrying had come to nothing.
And gave it up. And took my old body
and went out into the morning,
where happiness meets uncertainty….
inquiry for today~ when the heart is charmed by the sweet day…
Just keep breathing
Just keep smiling
Keep your chin held high
Just keep laughing
Then though you’re dying
Just keep keeping it inside
Cross your fingers
Hide your secrets
Walk by standing tall
Then close the door
Give up the war
And let the teardrops fall.
