Finally happy with myself,

With just me, today.

Wrote all of the checks,

Needed to pay my way.


I sit here content,

With my time at hand.

Continue for a while,

Before I get up and stand.


To place one foot in front,

In stride, before the other.

Moving ahead and forward,

With no worry or bother.


For, I have reached a point,

Very happy in my work.

Ignoring the petty,

Buffoons and jerks.


I cannot change people,

Can only change me.

I’m content with who I am,

Have peace of mind. Feel free.

        A point that eludes most people . Cherish the moment for they seem to be fleeting .
