Poetry: Enough

 

By Joanie Harrison

 

Try as we may;
Planting our little garden,
Sprouting, tilling, weeding,
Picking, freezing, canning,
It is not enough.

 

Try as we may:
Thinking, feeling, seeing,
Meditating, breathing, proclaiming,
It is not enough.

 

Try as we may:
Working, sleeping, eating,
Believing, preaching, criticizing,
It is not what actually is enough.

 

Being
Doing
Giving
Loving
When trying
No longer is needed
Is when we have enough.
