Many want to be rich
spending all their life seeking wealth
only to buy big houses and luxurious cars
Many want to be famous
competing for media coverage
only to find themselves in unfavourable situations
i need not be wealthy,
as long as having enough income to get by.
i don't crave for fame,
because that does not garantee happiness.
all i want is to be ordinary.
simplicity is what i pursue.
having my love ones around,
is what matters the most.
Seeing them in good health and spirit,
that's what i hope for.
These may sound ordinary,
and easy to achieve but they aren't.
As i grow older,
life isn't as simple as ABC.
i realised humans always complicate things.
life becomes complex maths formulas.
No straight forward solutions to them.
Simplicity is a breeze?
The earth is spinning days after days;
years after years.
Events happening around the globe;
in every other second.
Good or disastrous,
no one could foresees.
Unwelcomed circumstances often disrupt daily routine;
creating conflicts within self and between others.
These complicate life.
Simplicity can actually be effortless,
it depends all on the mind and heart.
How we choose to perceive things
and to view situations in a different light
do affect the degree of simplicity we will experience.
This process may be tedious,
but i'm learning...
