What Will Be Will Be

What Will Be Will Be

A Poem by Caleb Benton

What Will Be, Will Be
Here I am in the land of the free,
Livin
g in a world of leisure and luxury,
Sitti
ng in the shade, under a pecan tree,
On the old, famil
iar dirt of Lamb County,
Watch
ing a worker bee and it occurs to me,
Despi
te what I do, what will be, will be.

 A fact that’s in plain sight, yet hard to see.

A fact that’s so simple, yet it’s the key,

To living one’s life in simple harmony.
 
Every
thing struggles to some degree,
From the birds
in the sky, to fish in the sea.

Yet the birds
and fish don’t ever worry.

They alrea
dy know, what will be, will be.

I envy you.

I envy you beyond your imagination.

and I hate you

because I wish I could rhyme as amazingly as you did here. It wasn't even FORCED rhyming. It was natural and it rhymed and it flowed and was beautiful and fantastic and wonderful. It held one theme that was powerfully delivered.

DAMN YOU!

and kudos, by the way.

Caleb,
I also must comment on the effortless rhyming. To make the entire poem have the same end rhyme and not be cheesy is quite a feat. I applaud.
Love the subject of this poem beyond all words. It is refreshing and well stated. Reminds me of the song "Let It Be" by the Beatles.

Take Care,
Kate

Excellent write, I wish I wrote it, I have a problem, English is my second language, at times I have to struggle, my first is French. Reading is an escape for me. Thank you for sharing. God Bless

This might have been the first of your pieces that I've read. I can't recall for certain. At any rate, it's made a lasting impression.

I would love to have been there to see your countenance as your thoughts came together for this sweet little poem.

It takes me back to a time when we were both so young...and innocent...

Brilliant!
