all I have to do

happiness is
quietness on a Monday
the day stretching calm
on its back staring
at the sky:  no fight
no alarms
no worry
all I have to do is
be well
be at peace
know some calm some release
after turmoil and
no approbation

but with funds lodged enough
to see me through the last
I can sit calm
look out the window
dream and think
there was no wrong
and there is no-one
to claim
I am not enough
