Success Does Not Possess

Success is not engravedon the pieces of paperthat control our very lives. Success is engravedon our hearts and is only uncoveredwhen we have foundtrue happiness. Life's goal is not aboutPossession. Life is about learningto accept yourself and let things flowin their most natural state, To let go...

As You Go Through Life

Don't look for the flaws as you go through life; And even when you find them, It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind And look for the virtue behind them. For the cloudiest night has a hint of light Somewhere in its shadows hiding; It is better by far to hunt for a star, Than the spots on the sun abiding.

Though All The Fates

Though all the fates should prove unkind,Leave not your native land behind.The ship, becalmed, at length stands still;The steed must rest beneath the hill;But swiftly still our fortunes paceTo find us out in every place. The vessel, though her masts be firm,Beneath her copper bears a worm;Around the cape, across the line,Till fields of...

It Couldn’t Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done, and he...

Sylvia

The Nymph that undoes me, is fair and unkind; No less than a wonder by Nature designed. She's the grief of my heart, the joy of my eye; And the cause of a flame that never can die!  Her mouth, from whence wit still obligingly flows, Has the beautiful blush, and the smell, of the rose. Love and Destiny...

In Spite Of War

In spite of war, in spite of death, In spite of all man's sufferings, Something within me laughs and sings And I must praise with all my breath. In spite of war, in spite of hate Lilacs are blooming at my gate, Tulips are tripping down the path In spite of war, in spite of wrath. "Courage!" the morning-glory saith; "Rejoice!" the daisy murmureth, And just to...

This Might Be The Most Beautiful Poem Ever Written

I’ve always loved reading poems. To find a great poem, however, is a difficult thing, especially in a market oversaturated with poetry books of all sorts that usually have nothing of importance to say. The following prose poem, Desiderata, is certainly not one of those poems that you read and have no impact on you. Written by Max Erhman, it...

Making Life Worth While

Every soul that touches yours – Be it the slightest contact – Get there from some good; Some little grace; one kindly thought; One aspiration yet unfelt; One bit of courage For the darkening sky; One gleam of faith To brave the thickening ills of life; One glimpse of brighter skies – To make this life worthwhile And heaven a surer heritage. By George Eliot

My Wage

I bargained with Life for a penny, And Life would pay no more, However I begged at evening When I counted my scanty store; For Life is a just employer, He gives you what you ask, But once you have set the wages, Why, you must bear the task. I worked for a menial’s hire, Only to learn, dismayed, That any wage I had asked of Life, Life would have...
