This one comes from a really special moment for me. This morning when I started getting ready for work, I realized that I forgot the water was being shut off in my building for maintenance. Under normal circumstances, I know I would have freaked out a little, but today I just shrugged it off.
Really it’s no big deal. I could be displaced from my city like those from Fort McMurray, or I could be waking up just hoping I get a meal today like many people living in poverty all over the world. So, I wrote this;

No inconvenience can hold me back.
I will be fine no matter what I lack.
Going without is such a simple thing.
Especially, knowing that of what I need, I have everything.
Nothing in life is any great amenity.
When just a single thought can provide such amity.
What else could I need, ,when a single thought gets me through?
The external world cannot touch me with an ideal internal view.
This thought may now possess my mind.
Though, a reason to forget it I cannot find.
I know because of it, I can survive any discomfort.
That thought in itself provides the needed comfort.
Nothing in life is really any inconvenience.
Just another obstacle, from which I can easily distance.
