Drowning in excess

DSC04206

It seems to me that nowadays

Most of us on most days

Deal with excess in many ways

Shuffling through a meaningless maze

Of stuff- material goods of wide variety,

Information on things affecting our society

Food and wine to challenge sobriety-

Excess everywhere-provoking anxiety..

**

While paradoxically, mostly everywhere

There is a shortage of time to spare, 

Despite all the goods, to be fair

There isn’t enough money to not care

**

So the race continues to acquire

More possessions we seem to require

We have a compulsive need to rise higher

In search of the happiness that we desire

**

The mountains of stuff that we accumulate

Adding more constantly to our plate

As collateral damage tend to inflate

Our stresses leading to an unhappy state.

**

In theory simple is the solution

Difficult, though, is its execution

Minimalism should be our resolution

It might be the beginning of a revolution

To cut down excess from our lives forever

And indulge in little things that give us pleasure..
