Visit To Life


You're a stranger at a celebration,
Looking for familiar faces,
Uncertain of your invitation,
Retreating into shadowed spaces.
A set of eyes flash welcome to you,
You venture to them through the crowd,
A cruel stranger blocks you getting through,
'Friends, help me' you cry out loud,
'You're a visitor to this happy feast, '
A friendly guide steps up to say,
'Please dance and love and look for peace,
But as you've come, you need to know.'
Whether our way be joy or woe,
As we come so we must go.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
