Fragrant Foothold
I long to know
your essence pure,
the smile that
shines upon
serenity within
the hands of

I know that
I am here
to know
the essence of
myself within
the framework of
my mind,

Yet I announce
my everyday with
nuisances of which
deter my smile
away from here
and now.

Be free my friend,
relinquish all
the thoughts on
how to be.

Just be the
only road to
walk upon.

Your smile releases
all of you
for you to follow
with all the
wonder waiting
now to

Just be the one
who joyously
becomes the rose’s thorn,
giving foot to
your fragrance
now in bloom.

What are the “nuisances” that deter your smile away?
