BEING




BEING

S.JENSEN ©2021


TUNES IN NATURE

OR FOLK

HERITAGE

OLD WAYS

AND SIMPLY

BEING

SOOTH

DURING A

TURMOIL

OF A WHIRLWIND


MY PAIN

IS CONSTANT

BUT I DO MY

BEST TO IGNORE IT

LIKE TODAY

I GOT UP

DRANK COFFEE

AND

WALKED A MILE

AND A HALF

TO DO ERRAND

I HURT

ALL THE WAY

THERE

AND BACK

BUT I DID IT

CUS I NEED TO

ONE BEING

NEAR TREES

NEAR DEER

NEAR SQUIRRELS

NEAR BIRDS

NEAR WATER


AND TODAY

AS I WALKED

OVER THE BRIDGE

THIS KID

DOWN ON THE TRAIL

STARTED

DRUMMING

ON THE LIGHT POST

WITH TWO STICKS

HE MIGHT

HAVE BEEN 4

LOL

IT MADE ME SMILE

WHICH

WAS NEEDED

CONSIDERING

THE MESS

THAT IS CURRENT

SO IT GAVE

ME A MOMENT

TO LET GO

NO MATTER

WHAT

WHILE THERE

DOING ERRAND

I FORGOT

SOMETHING

SO I GRABBED

AND GOT

ON BUS

THEN WENT

OH I FORGOT

THE REASON

I WENT OUT

FOR ERRAND

SIGH

BUT GOT

KID TO BRING

IT CUS

ONCE HOME

I COULDN’T

PHYSICALLY

GO AGAIN


I PAINTED

IN A ART CHALLENGE

TODAY

AND WILL DO

A MASTER CLASS

WATERCOLOUR

THING TOMORROW

ONLINE

SO I AM

CONTINUING

TO BE ME

AND BEING


SOME DAYS

ITS HARD

NO LIE

IT CAN BE

VERY HARD


BUT AS A FRIEND

SAID

YESTERDAY

ONE WORD


IT GAVE ME

THE STRENGTH


“WILL”


SO YEAH


I CAN HAVE

THE MOST

DETERMINATION

OUT THERE

AND PUSH

WHEN THERE

IS NO WAY

TO OR ODDS

STACKED

AGAINST ME

ITS JUST

MY BLOOD

IT WON’T

GIVE UP


AND I TRY

TO BE WISE

ABOUT IT

AND NOT

OVER DO IT

THATS WHY

I RODE BUS

BACK

AND NOT ATTEMPTED

THE WALK BACK

THAT WOULD

HAVE BEEN

FOOLISH

UNDER THIS PAIN


THE LITTLE THINGS

MATTER SO MUCH

EVEN

THOUGH

MY CAT

IS BEING

A PAIN

SHE IS ALSO

HERE

TO KEEP ME

MOTIVATED

LIKE

IN THE MORNING

SHE MEOWS

TIL I WAKE UP

LOL


AND GETS MAD

AT ME IF

I GO BACK

TO BED LOL


BEING

YES I WORRY

LORD DO I WORRY

BUT I FIND

A WAY

SOMEHOW

CUS WE HAVE TO


EVEN IF

ITS JUST

LISTENING

TO A HANG DRUM

BEAT

OR A PIANO TUNE

OR A HARP

OR JUST A SOUND


IT RAISES ME

UP

THERE IS

NO COMPARISON


AND TO

A FRIEND

THAT NEEDS

I AM OK


SMILE

I AM STILL HERE


SOME DAYS

I WONDER

WHEN

OTHERS

I TRY NOT

TO THINK ON IT


IT IS WHAT IT IS

BUT WE CAN’T

DWELL IN

DARKNESS

THEN WE

BECOME

DARKNESS


SO I LET

IT GO

AND FOCUS

WHERE I CAN

TO GET

THROUGH

EACH DAY

BEING


FOR THE TRUTH

OUT WAYS

EVERYTHING


AND IT WILL

ALWAYS

SHINE THROUGH


DESPITE

IT ALL

I AM GLAD

TO BE ALIVE

AS I AM

HERE

CUS

IT IS

WORTH WHILE


I SHARE

I CREATE

I BE ME


AND JUST

BE


IMPERFECT

AND ALL


AS LONG AS

POSSIBLE


IF I CAN

CREATE

ONE THING

IN THESE

MOMENTS

GIVEN

THEN

I AM HAPPY


NO MATTER

WHAT THAT

CREATING

IS


THAT

TO BE HUMAN

IS LOVE

IS LIFE

IS LIGHT

IS THE

MOST

PRECIOUS

THING

THERE IS


AND

SOMETIMES

I THINK

HUMANITY

IS LOSING

THAT

SIGH


WHEN ONE

THING

ENDS

SOMETHING

ELSE

BEGINS


THAT IS

THE WAY

OF THINGS


SO

MAY YOU

ALL

ENJOY

JUST BEING
