Sonnet: Reconfiguration


Recorded Reading:



What is the meaning of the word “success”?
That, once we into adulthood have grown,
Shall shopkeepers our money smiling bless
And we will own what all the others own?

Will it mean that we spend our time away
From those with whom our true happiness lies,
Become so stiff we forget how to play,
Look down on the impoverished but wise?

Or might the best success be in the smiles
Of those to whom we reach out as a friend
And ease along through life’s most weary miles ~
As someone upon whom they can depend

Caring, kind and considerate to be?
~ That seems much more like true success to me

Public housing being insufficient to her medical and creative needs, she is presently livingin order to continue workingin her minivan, publishing all of her works using one thumb on the touch screen of her smartphone at an income of a fraction of her nation’s poverty level. She would treasure any donation you might care to offer ~ ● #72D-31S
