The Dilemma of Should

Updated: Sep 23, 2019


A bird comes to rest on a tree,

as people walk aimlessly

around me.


Nowhere to go.

Nothing to do.


Asking;

What SHOULD I do?

How SHOULD I be?


Can you let go

of the SHOULD?


Can you do

exactly what you are

doing now?


Can you be

exactly how you are

right now?


They say;

But,

then there is nothing.


Open to nothing,

perhaps there is

something.


Silence?

Discomfort?

Sadness?

Frustration?

Comfort?

Joy?

Insight?

Sound?

Breath?


Perhaps a bird

come to rest on a tree

just there.


Can that be

everything?
