These Things I Know

I just sit and look,
Watching life go on outside,
Spectator no more.

Like these ducks I saw,
Swimming in the pool last night,
On the lam, they were.

Water all around,
Ducks don’t care if tame or wild,
Swimming’s what they do.

I want to be free,
Of my judgments, fears, wrong sight,
Not the truth, just thoughts.

Each new day I must,
See the blessings, give my thanks,
For all life to flow.

Who knows where I’ll be,
In two months, it matters not,
This day I am free.
