Let Man Control His Mind and Heart


Most things in life will turn out to be fine;
None can predict the course of future well;
Let sun be warmer or pleasantly shine;
It all depends on mind - heaven or hell!

Life is in giving up our vices fast;
Life is in nurturing our virtues prime;
Life is in learning wisdom from our past;
Life is in feeling joy in any clime!

Nothing is good or bad but if we control;
Our desires shouldn't seize our mind and heart;
We shouldn't forget the future of our soul;
Living in moderation is an art!

And when we share, we get more happiness;
And when we give, our heart is filled with joy;
And when we triumph over sinfulness,
No evil forces can our soul annoy!

God made the earth for man to enjoy life;
We should control our thoughts and actions well;
All excesses can add on to our strife;
A life God-centered rings a joyful bell!

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
