I do not wait

For tomorrow

Or the coming of brighter days.

.

I do not wait

For tides to turn

suns to set.

or muted winter.

 

I do not wait.

for happiness.

 

I do not sacrifice

Today’s beauty

For tomorrow’s conditions.

In suffering

dwells strength.

In courage.

rejoicing

And there is gratitude

in triumph.

 

I do not save

Gleaming smiles

And tumbling laughter

For times of leaves incarnadine.

 

Happiness need not

be invested

but spent generously

 

I am happy.

I know that

Happiness will exist.

If it’s existence is willed.

A reason in itself.

I do not wait.
