On Being
By Don Iannone




















By chance you see that you're free
to be however you would like to be,
Would you be as you are,
or how you've been in life thus far?
Or would you be very differently?
Then, would you be more happily?
Not at all a simple play on words,
Nor an excuse to follow the herds,
Think about this deeply as you can,
Then craft for yourself a new life plan.

Thanks all for your comments.

Apology for the recorded version not working earlier. It does now. Blogger has had MAJOR problems and I could not get the MP3 version to post. It's there now.

Kathleen...so good you could visit friends in Santa Fe. Neat! Namaste.

Don,
Beautiful poem. Much to reflect on. Thank you for your continued flow in creativity and beauty. Lovely to see that expressed. I look forward to getting my computer to play these so I can hear them read by the author.

Joyful blessings of peace and Love to you always.

Beautiful poem, and I love the rhymes. Now to put those words into action...

Don,
I must have tucked away the title of your poem into the back of my mind somewhere when I read it, as I didn't even realize I titled my recent blog post "On Being" as well. See what an inspiration you are!!!

Joyful Blessings of Love and Peace fo you.
