Look to find what you want in the place you are in.
In our youth we yearn to be older.
We get upset about all the grown up things we can’t do.
When we’re older we can do the things we want,
When we want to do them,
How we want to do them.
When we get to that place where we’re older things will get better.
We get older though,
And things don’t change.
We get caught up in work,
Burdened by bills,
And assaulted by life.
Next, we look towards a place,
A place called retirement.
We say, “When I retire I can do what I want.
Finally I’ll have some money and all the time I need.”
We work hard and save. We sacrifice and suffer.
We do this in hopes of enjoying that place called retirement.
Then we get older.
Our health fails and our money dwindles.
We look to our youth.
“Those were the days,” we say.
“Those were the days.”
We live in places we are never happy with.
We live in apartments, yet want condos.
We move to condos, and yearn to be in houses.
We buy houses, then want larger ones.
We tell ourselves,
We’ll be happy once we live in a big house.
Once I have that, I’ll have all I need.
We work in places we sometimes hate.
We read the classifieds and go on interviews.
We hop from job to job.
Sometimes we hop for money,
Sometimes we hop for environment,
Sometimes we hop for prestige.
Every hop we take,
We say, “This will be the last!”
Yet every hop we take,
We end up in a place,
We still are not happy with.
In our lives we look for happiness.
We seek it in a place.
Unfortunately the place,
Is not the place we’re in.
We need to look more closely,
At the place we’re in.
If we look hard enough.
We may find happiness.

|'Places' causes one to remember who we are, and that true happiness comes from within our hearts. Holly|

|We take ourselves with us where ever we go, so we better like ourselves.
Once we get out on our own, we do things exactly the way we have been programed to do. It is up to us to change the information. Life works if we work at life...and truth works...if it is our truth. Brick walls don't have to be a way of life.
You've expressed many peoples frustrations.

|Wonderful reminder of how futile the chase for the rainbow beyond the horizon is, G....true happiness always comes from within us...
