Subtle Joy

​I have mistaken neutrality for indifference

I assumed because I wasn’t flailing between dramatic extremes that I was somehow lacking passion and being untrue to my feelings

I don’t have to fight

An infant cries when its needs are not met

I cry when I don’t get my way
My existence doesn’t depend on instant gratification and bending others to my will

Show me the way of selflessness 

Let me greet each day with compromise and subtle joy for what is

Teach me love and tolerance for all things
Thank You
~ S.D.
