We’re looking for euphoria!
For what, and why and also how?
Hence the drugs and alcohol,
Speedy pills et al, et al.

To keep on living in the now
Focussed in the movement’s moment,
Never knowing longterm outcomes
But affecting points in time, each one guided
In a way that shapes the next –
That the essence of this text!

How much sway
We really have on any day
We cannot tell.
How much mastery is in our hands,
We cannot know or understand.
We want to win continuance,
A longterm dance, gratified, fulfilled and happy.
This we know instinctively.

Thus we come back to the word:
A summing up of qualities
Which make an ease of living
Satisfaction in the highest;
Gaiety, cheer and delight
And even rapture which transports.

Instead of being in the world
Distorted by cavorting forces,
One can feel supported.

Hence words such as: ‘seventh heaven’ and ‘cloud nine’ –
Euphemisms for the finest
of the fine.
Let us use euphoria’s intoxication
Leaving out the toxic station.
We are worth the jubilation
We were born to own.
