Peace Portraits: Grounded 


Sea Peace Mountains

Just for today,

  • I will not worry
  • I will not be angry 
  • I will do my work honestly 
  • I will give thanks for my many blessings
  • I will be kind to my neighbors and all living things  

More than I can stomach

My eye are big

My heart is bigger,

but my stomach is small.


My dreams are biggest.

My hopes are greatest,

but my stomach is small.


Today I try.

Tomorrow I try harder.

For what?

I’m not sure.


To enlarge my stomach?


That sounds about right.


My stomach,

my moderator,

my greatest adversary in life,

telling me something.


Rarely choosing to listen.

driven by hopes and dreams,

“more than I can stomach”

reminding me,


Chose wisely.


Your eyes are big.

Your heart is bigger,

but your stomach is small,

for there is living to do.
