Let All Bygones Be Bygone


There is a saying a lovely saying let all bygones be bygone
For acts of revenge leads to counter revenge and ill feeling lives on
Where hate and mistrust is rife sanity cannot prevail
Revenge and counter revenge only leads to crime and jail.

Let all bygones be bygones those words to them have a nice ring
But 'tis never of the peacemakers that the balladeers do sing
When we do glorify violence in a musical way
We are trying to tell the World that violence is okay.

You treat people around you with the respect they are due
And it is more than likely that they will respect you
In life and in life's karma if in karma you believe
What you do unto others in kind you will receive.

'Tis harder by far to make a friend than to make an enemy
And let all bygones be bygones that's how it ought to be
Revenge only leads to counter revenge and hatred only grow
And in the karma of life we receive what we sow.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
