Slake, with gallons,

            from the lake

of deep tranquility,


find solutions,

            in the mind,

nurture serenity.


Cope with problems,

            amid hope,

despite complexity,


serve our causes,

            driven with verve,

remember levity.


Drink from life

            unto the brink,

too brief mortality,


cast futile fears

            or worries passed,

transform our destiny.


Plan for kindness

            when we can,

Karmic codicil,


not all choices

            need be fraught

nor made against our will.

  1. I love the structure of this poem, and its flow is wonderful. For me the indented lines, as well as being integral to the poem as a whole, also work as a poem within a poem. Great writing!
