Invited To Explore


Living life,
As if invited to explore it...
Would be of benefit.
Just to awaken fully aware of this,
Eliminates the importance...
Of making impressions or finding,
That a necessity on a daily basis to pursue.
Many spend their entire lifetimes,
Making comparisons of differences.
Then to select from them their preferences.

Living life,
As if invited to explore it...
With it known time is limited,
Should eventually dawn upon those...
Who have arrived to achieve consciousness,
How much happier they feel than others.
But so many keep such druthers,
Seeking and finding for themselves conflicts...
Confusion, pain and sorrow everyday,
To share with someone who also complaints.

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.
