Don’t Take Life So Seriously

No Mental Struggle

Almost no one knows really, it is sad to say,
How to love themselves because they’re running around
Attempting to find others to love them instead.
They will do what it takes – even stand on their head
To elicit the worthiness they haven’t found
In themselves. They believe it has to be this way.

You can change the way you are to please other folk.
It’s a high price to pay for a thing not of worth
In the purest sense. People are fickle and vain
And your sucking up to them will drive you insane.
The pain of pleasing others is worse than childbirth.
Only great disappointment from them you’ll evoke.

People feel the vibrations of certain others
At a subconscious level so what they can sense
Is your confounded neediness. Then they control
Your behavior and eventually your soul.
The damage to who you are is grossly immense.
You will be the victim in whatever occurs.

Do not take the biggest issue that you can find
Then attempt to work with it. Take things that are small
And become more lighthearted. Do not watch tv.
Be with people who are real and happen to be
Interested in you. You will not please them all.
Life is not all that serious when you’re aligned.

Don’t Take It Seriously

Levity Is In Order

Why do I take my living so seriously,
Finding pleasure in nothing but playing the game
Of pretend satisfaction? I live not at ease
Because I waste my focus on people to please.
Finding joy within oneself cannot be the same.
It’s the most wholesome origin ever to be.

Sourness, the byproduct of people pleasing,
Permeates my existence. An ever presence
Is the tartness of taste, feeling that I must sell
My perfected self proudly. I don’t do that well.
Peddling of one’s true self comes at the harsh expense
Of addiction to always ever appeasing.

“If I smile will you love me? Suppose I tap dance
As I juggle three Rubik’s cubes while solving them?”

This compulsive behavior is what makes life hard,
And it needs to be looked at. If I’m more on guard
To my slipping into that mode, I’ll find the gem
Of enlightenment relative to circumstance.

The more I look to others for love, the more I
Am not in sync with who I am most truthfully.
Solving not the big issues, I shine at the small.
In becoming more lighthearted, the less I fall
To the favor of others. And ultimately,
I’m as worthy as ever and shall always be.
