Solitude - Poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care.

Rejoice, and men will seek you;
Grieve, and they turn and go.
They want full measure of all your pleasure,
But they do not need your woe.
Be glad, and your friends are many;
Be sad, and you lose them all.
There are none to decline your nectared wine,
But alone you must drink life's gall.

Feast, and your halls are crowded;
Fast, and the world goes by.
Succeed and give, and it helps you live,
But no man can help you die.
There is room in the halls of pleasure
For a long and lordly train,
But one by one we must all file on
Through the narrow aisles of pain.

    It is a superb poem. Just for the sake of discussion, I give the following points.
    1. Weeping gives depression but when you visit a cardiologist, he will advice you not to laugh boisterously.
    2. You do not always grieve alone. In some funerals thousands will come to share the grief. In the Chinese community, they celebrate grief.
    3. Succeed and give and it helps you live. It is a good thought.
    4. But no man can help you die. The priest sometimes helps by prayer. (Report) Reply
