Embracing minimalism

pacific montereyLooking at my storage shelves one day

I saw things spilling out every which way

Clothes, accessories, books and journals-

Realized I was surrounded by disorder infernal

Too many objects, creating clutter and chaos

Things bought at random, reason “just because”

Acquired for pleasure, but causing irritation

Adding to my stress were my prized possessions….

**

Looking at the mayhem, on an impulse I decided

Acquiring stuff for pleasure was a goal short-sighted

I no longer owned my stuff, but my stuff now owned me

Fettered by possessions, I no longer felt I was free

I had to let go and downsize, of that I was certain

What did I love least-now that was hard to ascertain..

Tempted was I to hold back to objects sentimental

Letting go of my belongings was a task monumental

**

As more of a minimalistic lifestyle I embraced

More unnecessary clutter from my life I erased

Taking this concept another notch further

I stopped doing things non-essential altogether

Discovered the joy of a simple lifestyle

Making life meaningful and every moment worthwhile!
