PROMPT: Having It All

What does “having it all” mean to you? Is it attainable?

Being healthy of mind, body, and in one’s closest interpersonal relationship(s.)

Yes. It’s absolutely attainable.

I subscribe to the thinking of Epicurus — i.e. “Nothing is enough for the man to whom enough is too little.” And Socrates — i.e. “The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”

Elephantine March [Free Verse]

The herd is on the march.

They lumber with slow

The young achieve   
       playful swagger,
        but aren't allowed
         too wide of the line. 

I wonder whether they're
       going someplace good?
