Gleanings From The Wise - Poem by Max Reif

Our world is an island in a great Ocean;
We touch its shore in our crossings, again and again,
Each time forgetting we’ve been here before.
Everyone bears some invisible burden; no one’s slate is clean.
Every day is a triumph for some, a disaster for others.
All we can do is try to be kind.

    If you believe in Karma, you think twice about what you are about to say or do. Good rule to live by, then each new 'crossing' gets better and better. I like the way you think.
