that's beautiful smiling face

i got married when i was 19 so went from living with my parents to living with husbands (divorced twice) and roommates over the next fifteen years. only in the last few years of living on my own have i been able to enjoy the feeling of peace in solitude that this poem expresses. meditation was an important part of helping me get to that place, may others find it too.


(thank you for the awesome dedication)

To live by one's self
To break all ties
To see yourself in your perspective, yours alone
To live in selfish pursuit of what you want

To bear the responsibilities
To give up so much
To be obligated towards
Nobody but yourself

At the end
You may be left empty handed
But at the end
You'd be satisfied
