King For A Day

by James Collins (author's profile)


"King for a Day"

Oh how I miss freedom
The simple life
Waiting in a cashier's line
Places that normal people call pressure
What I'd do for the simple life again
Shopping down the vegetable row
Squeezing various kinds of fruits
And bagging nuts in plastic
I wouldn't be in any hurry
I'd savor the fresh smell
It would be a fun time
Reading the food facts on labels
Making good choices in what to eat
And being able to select real meat
I would be king for a day

It is true, the small moments like the ones in the grocery store, make up your life. It is a good reminder to notice and appreciate everything about the present moment.

I'll bet if you look hard, you can find beautiful moments to appreciate where you're at. It's much harder, I'm sure, but worth a try?
