Seeing all these ’10 ways to live happy’ posts on tumblr inspired me to put up this poem that I wrote quite a while ago.
Qu’est-ce que j’adore?
What do I love?
I love the sounds at the crack of dawn
I love the colours the skies paint at sunset
I love the feeling of grains, of sand, of dirt.
I love when children come out with words so profound
Yet don’t realise it
I love when people discover who they are
I love when people find their voice
And become who they were meant to be.
I love inspiration
I love perspiration
I love love LOVE laughter
The euphoria it brings, creating sweet memories to last a lifetime
But who do I love?
I live in the love of my father
I know people go on about him
But it is honestly because he’s worth it
He has a hold on people, bigger than Beyonce
And the feeling you get when you realise he loves you
No matter WHAT you do
…..You can’t explain it
…..You can’t describe it
And you try to scribble down some song or poem or drawing
Kinda like I’m doing now
But once you’re done, there’s always that little bit of sadness
Cos you know that what you’ve done
Will never be able to fully express
So who do I love?
Who else is there?
But the God who is.
