Passing through a Port
of some Reknown

By Wessicht

Oh! I am happy happy happy!
Who knew that life
would be so complicated?
And yet so fun?

The grand scheme of life is living.
It is overcoming obstacles
and pushing past our limits.
It is loving long enough to want to live,
and living long enough to want to love!

How splendid does the grass grow green,
when one is full and healthy!
Wealth a thousand times increased
in size knows not of happy ends,
but every child knows quite well
the way the green grass bends!

But be still. For still, there's work to do.
Many miles fill the space between my current place
and where I wish to go. I'm not quite ready
yet, to put away my shoes. But then,
what pilgrim ever is?
