The Outside Inside Claim Game

Sadness seeps into
and then keeps eating at you
driving inside out

Happiness derives
from within your inner spin
not from that without

Living life too long
may dull interior song
dimming glitter’s grin

To regrow the show
one needs to go way down low
clean your cluttered in

This sad sin of self
demanding a higher shelf
does dishonor here

It’s our fear of loss
in ever increasing cost
which our ego hocks

So just give not fake
and your smile outside take
hidden anger ease

Your arrow of gain
will arise when whine is tamed
and you dampen pain

For it’s all a game
without anyone to blame
except your own aim

We all are the same
just as confused as we came
birth to earth in shame

    Gosh.. I really like this poem…

    inner spin… and taming our whine is what it is all about. Isn’t it?
