Are you fulfilled in happiness or riding the rut of life,
driving down back alleys in the dark
or walking in the bright sunlight tripping on roadside curbs.
Do you feel as if things are not quite right,
spiraling from decisions made that felt true back then
but make you cringe while you live them today.
Does satisfaction exist in pure pleasure of companionship,
conversing spontaneously without effort
and living in moments of silence hearing the breath next to you.
Do little things grate while important things are brushed aside,
planning goals that run in opposite directions and
wondering if the mistake is not knowing a mistake was made.
Are you fulfilled in happiness or riding the rut of life.
