“Belly Up”

to some
happiness might be
as simple as a smile
an occasional giggle

to others
it may be surroundings
what they look at
what they see

to me
I love to laugh
love the sound of it
love the feel of it

maybe it reminds me
to be happy

“Out of Whack”

the thought of change
is much more exciting
than the reality of it

the clouds still form
the trees still blow in the wind
everything looks different
and I’m beginning to realize why

the perfect alignment
how I feel?

maybe the first step
of realization
is seeing

now to take the next step
