Most of us are walking
Unaware how we got here

Looking for happiness
Desiring simple pleasures
All the time

Desires laying down
The stepping stones to expectations
Of becoming this
Of becoming that
Having this
Of having that

Expectations unmet
In a fertile field
Sowing seeds of sorrow
Growing into weeds
Of anger and frustration

Sorrow, anger and frustration
Weapons of self-inflicted
Physical and Emotional

Unaware how we got here
Healing begins by
The compassionate observer
In us


I am grateful to Anuva Kalawar, artist and writer, for composing the term Locating the compassionate observer.
