Rejoice
By Don Iannone
Rejoice in knowing
your happiness
does not depend upon
you knowing anything.
Rejoice in discovering
the discoverer
who needn't search any further
to find himself.
Rejoice in accepting
that the moment
is all you have
and all you will ever need.
Rejoice for the sake of rejoicing
for in so doing
you find happiness.

Hi Don, Capturing the moment!

In the moment is where it's at
The past is gone who knows where
a glimmer a memory more distant every year
and the future who really knows
what tomorrow brings as time flows

Rejoice in Being
Being Be and Rejoice
