Sweet and Sour Personal Power

Sweetly sour
the aftertaste
of “Oh, so close”
versus
“Oh no, this is
all wrong”
Satisfaction over desires
the path to happiness
can be such a bitter pill
when the Universe
repeatedly slams NO
right in your face
Have a little grace
step back the pace
reread the fine print
lost in the tint
of rose-colored glasses
Want what works
work what you want
Somewhere in between
you’ll see
Get what you need
attachment released
to a desired outcome
Sounds ho-hum
but there’s nothing humdrum
about outer/inner peace
Sweet and sour
yet still power
to continue on
your wayward fun
