A Better Place


my heart is strongly set
to do what good i can do
and when i leave this world
i hope to have made a difference
to have made the world
a better place in my own way
even if it is in a small way
by having tried to be kind
to all whose path has crossed mine
by treating others with respect
helping those in need of encouragement
to reach their goals
or perhaps by writing something
that helps someone in some fashion
if i have accomplished this
then i have completed my souls work

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
