Like fish in water I'd like to swim,
I'd like to fly like eagles,
like a bear in the forest
I want to live:

like leafy trees
that reach the lighted sky,
like unstoppable bees and never surrendering ants
I want to live:

like migrating birds,
like enduring dogs,
and always agile cats
in their struggle to survive:

like the majestic dolphin
in water I wish I could live.

Joe Trava

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."
