I do not wait

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.


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.
