Good Directions

"It takes

little talent

to see


what lies


one's nose,

but a good

of talent

to know in which direction to point that organ."
~ W. H. Auden

Most people know which way their nose is pointed,

except for the drunk or the emotionally unbalanced

who get their direction from their addiction.

The sufferer usually can't believe or do not want to believe

what lies right under their nose.

Seek direction from family, the functional ones, friends,

the sober ones, and a Higher Power, the one whose directions

everyone should be following.

Happiness is not in where we stand, but in what direction

we are moving, we must sail sometimes with the wind

and sometimes against it.

Happiness is clearly seeing good in the direction one is headed.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
