In Discussions Of Yesterday


Whatever stops one from progessing,
To accept the various stages of life...
With a maturity that reflects self examination,
To apply...
And let go to grow to experience each step,
As denials are set aside...
Is not a decision to make for one who breaks away,
To escape from delusions made...
That keeps a childish mind confined and feeling safe,
In discussions of yesterday with a proving to do as done.

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.
