UNINTENDED COOL

Mellowed by life
And its variety of
Never-ending
Slings & arrows
I settled into what?
A state of Zen?
 
Not that daily affairs
Can’t get my goat
Or get me down…
I never claimed
To be so perfect…
Just that I try hard
To be easy-going
In a topsy-turvy world
 
When most flows upward
Contrary to science
I do my best to
Understand what
I can change or not
And how to adapt
 
What is both easy & hard
Changing myself…
To find my place and
To live my own life
No stress on or from others

I guess that’s cool enough

      Thanks, Suzanne. I guess some people see artists and poets as cool, just for what they are? Or maybe it’s just being clearly not uptight. Perish the thought of that. If younger people give ya the nod, that’s okay with me.
