I know I am not the only one, still...I'm just tired
I am not singled out in this quest for whatever it is,
personal salvation-not exactly
just content and occasionally satisfied and more than a little happy
some people make happy seem like it lasts as long as
and time ticks so quick that my impatience cannot even fully grasp just how frustrated I am getting underneath the surface of all this
Yes it does! And I love how that sounds together, too!
Tick-tock, and now the holidays are over and the "Merry" and the "Cheer" are already fading in many.
I like how you say you want to get underneath it. Like you want to dig past the BS and get to what is real.
I like that you say what you're trying to find isn't salvation, just a moment or two or real, honest joy.
I agree that happiness is not forever, but I also like the idea that--not contentment--but calm, can sleep just below the surface, even in times of turmoil. That there can be a level of warmth and love that makes the good times better and the bad times bearable. I like the idea of that. . . whether or not it is really attainable I don't know.
If you don't mind, please see what you think of my poem "The 13th Day". I'd like your take on it.
I feel the same way. The holidays aren't my favorite time of the year either. Most of the time all I see is happiness durning the holidays, but underneath everyone gets frusterated. I know I do. Especially when you get those people that really over do each and every holiday. But still, you're right. The time seems to fly by and then they're over. All the frustrations from the holiday start to dissapear or they get even worse. Depending on who you are and how you react to it all. Just be happy with the times you have especially the good and happy times.
