Alternative way

If you are feeling at a low ebb

Despondent unable to cope, with lifes web

Heartbroken, unappreciated

Clothed but feeling stark naked
When you want to give up,stop, look for hope

Regroup, retrench and for a moment,be a castle in a moat

Find your essence, the centre of your being

Retreat into your inner eye, do new seeing
Let go of all the things you can’t control

Hold all your strengths and blessings to extol

Grieve for dreams unfulfilled

Wishes and hopes that have chilled
Then parcel that grief and toss it away

Breath deep the scent of the happiness bouquet 

Find small green shoots to nurture, even in the devastation 

Don’t give up, hold on, it’s all in the interpretation

Find lifes alternative way.

Happiness Road

​Which is the road that leads to happiness

Is the sign post instantaneous

Does one tread a path and start anew

Or should one do a life review

A commitment made has become a burden

Start a new life, new diversion

Where to dump the heavy load

Grief and woe and loneliness

Which is the road to happiness

Ditch commitments run away

Or try to work with feet of clay

Entrenched in doubt, tormented by fear

Need to get the thinking clear

The path to happiness might be nearer than you know

Reach out to a friend in the undertow

Then cherish yourself in order to grow


Happiness mislaid

​Happiness lost

Emotion strained

Tears slipping down 

Into a lake of pain

Darkness hovering

Misery filtering

Love dispelled

Days of hell

Realisation, life goes on

Going to be hard

Missing your song

Climbing the peak

To reach the top

New vista stretching

Freefall the drop

New love out there

Will one day find

Find other joys

To ease my mind

Happiness lost?

No just mislaid.
