True Joy

by Stephanie Daich

True joy in life comes from the soul and not the place,
As those who have suffered have suffered with grace.
It’s not enough to close your eyes.
To situations, you hate or despise.
Patience and tolerance can be the key.
Divert your focus from your “me.”
But when the situation does not bring favor.
There still is good around to savor.
Deep in the heart, tranquility does bloom.
Allow it in. Give it room.
True joy in life is there for you.
To grasp it, change your point of view.
