Dune Buggy in My Mind, a Poem

Rolling down life’s highway in the dune buggy in my mind.
Up and down, endless rolling hills; taking turns that wind.
Asking questions, looking for answers.
Never hard to find.

The answer we get, the answers we give, the people we meet on the way.
Our questions are the things that power us, not to go astray.
Westward and back, to the east and down, in any direction we travel.
Seeking and searching and striving, we want life’s mysteries to unravel.

The beauty of a brilliant sunset.
A warm sandy beach at our feet.
The smile of good folks welcoming us.
The beauty of the world we greet.

Happiness comes to some early, for others we have to learn.
Happiness fills our cup, when for the wonders of the world we yearn.
Amazing this world of ours; incredible the bright burning stars.
Being amazed is what can make us happy – rejoicing in the majesty of it all.

Hey now, stand tall. Say it.
You can be big, you can be small. It doesn’t matter, you can stand tall. Believe it!
And when we stand tall, we see the beauty; we feel the beauty; we live the beauty.
See it. Be it. Be the beauty.

Beauty is not perfection. Beauty is the glow of contentment.
Beauty dwells in the search. Beauty is in our eyes, full of wonderment.
Beauty is.
Be.

Rolling down life’s highway in the dune buggy in my mind.
Up and down, endless rolling hills; taking turns that wind.
Asking questions, looking for answers.
Never hard to find
