The Golden Egg

Suppose you had a goose,
A goose that would produce
A golden egg a day
You wouldn’t want to lose
That special golden goose
You’d care for it in every way

Now something of more incredible worth
Was given to each of us at birth
We ‘ve got a worthy thinking brain
If positive, loving thoughts we’d feed it
Yes that is really all that’s needed
Just think of all the golden eggs to gain

If we keep up with doom and hateful thinking
Consuming drugs, excessive drinking
Getting stressed about any item in the news
Neglect good deeds and thoughts of pure
We can count on it, perfectly sure
That we will lose our brain as golden goose

Let’s feed our brain with all the best
Positive thoughts, lofty aims, a loving chest
Let’s focus on God’s way, forget the rest
Search daily for some goodness in the news
And sure your brain, just like the goose
A golden egg a day it will produce

    Good brain food. Great practical advice for the way to a better life. But it will not work, unless we, each, take the time to sincerely put it into practice. I'm all for it Aufie.

    Yes, there is so much wisdom in this poem. I am so happy to see how many people is thinking and approving this kind of positiveness.

    Lovely! to think that we get so lost in darkness that surrounds us, we forget to think of a positive thing daily. We are stressed over the state of things in our lives. If we can take one positive thought, turn it into an 'egg' that produces more positive thoughts.

    Very nice the way it shows the spirituality in it with one simple act of a positive thought and actively look for something good to share. I do like this poem. It is sublime in the simplicity of the message.
