Sonnet To One's Joyful Self

Time steals our days and nights until its spin
Is curbed when thoughts revive our zest to be
Alive again. We must draw from within 
Ourselves the joys of living truly free!

Go to music, it will soothe one’s spirit,
Meditate with nature free to savor.
Seek a poem, wisely choose a sonnet!
Anything that grants your mind more flavor.

Life exists amidst abundant pleasures.
Each must seize his moments of warming sun. 
Fret not how one chooses his best measures,
Joys will travel with him until he’s done. 

Are we joyful? Each must ask the question.
Search your heart to know its best direction.
