Half-blessed! But Why?

Everything I do seems half-blessed;
Everything I do turns life insecure;
Everything I do remains half-finished;
Everything I do is unsuccessful;

Everything I do is wrongly done;
Everything I do is risky;
Everything I do is clumsy.
Everything I do is unsatisfactory.

Everything I do lacks progress;
Everything I do seems dangerous;
Everything I do lessens mind’s peace;
Everything I do is cumbersome.

And when I ponder why,
Perhaps the God of High
Isn’t satisfied with my
Soul’s state of grace and lie!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
