Each Small Moment

Each Small Moment.jpg

 

A quest for instant satisfaction drives fools to the edge,

a rush of adrenaline to fuel fleeting desires wrapped in pretty packages

It’s never enough to satisfy the need lurking just beneath

Disjointed ambition pandering to greed, to need, to concede

Settling for less when what the heart craves, what the heart knows,

seems too daunting a task

 

Take time with the things that matter

 

An intention made, whispered in a quiet moment,

is a cause worthy of time and patience and strength

It allows room to let frustration linger, turning slowly

until obstacles become stepping stones and each small victory

blazes a trail toward fulfillment

Because when it is important, each step fits

even when it leads to the same road block

Sometimes spinning in circles reveals the right direction

 

Take time with the things that matter

 

A quest for inner satisfaction drives the determined to the edge,

a foundation built to support enduring goals wrapped in careful planning

Just enough to satisfy the need lurking just beneath

Bounded ambition attending to identity, to integrity, to serenity

Demanding more even when what the heart craves, what the heart knows,

seems too daunting a task

 

Take time with the things that matter
