Sometime ago, I decided to be Zen.
I am sure of the why,
and I know the when.
I wanted some direction in life.
Some rules or a code to follow.
I decided to get a book,
to try and fill the part of me that was hollow.
The book was filled with quotes from Zen Masters,
who all offered ideas on ways to live.
I tried to use these to find a path,
and realized I had an opinion to give
I could use this book
and try to learn the way,
or I could do what I do,
every single day.
The lesson I learned,
after deciphering the lines,
is that I already am a little Zen,
and the path I am on is fine
