I’m a string on life’s guitar
tuned with the tension to ring

Our garden now is filled
with many tiny sprouts
gently set amongst

Hurrying forward

to sink in despair

When facing creative resistance
And freezing with thoughts of rejection
Step into the path of persistence
And out of the trap of perfection

Happy is
not just for after you win
Happy is
how to begin

Beneath
the inner stories we allow
Await
the inner glories of the now
