Happy

Happy.  That’s the goal.

You can start from there.

That would be best.

If it’s a ways away,

the trip is worth taking,

gently stepping in

each moment toward

it.

Some are impatient

and rash.

They take “foolish”

risks to remain

high.

Leaps often

are greater than

we can take

or are ready

for.

Risks cannot

be avoided in

life.

Let them

be

enhancing

carrying you

to the next

one.

A lot of baby

steps amounts

to a lot at

the end of

the day.
