Haiku - Poem by Lois Dahlberg

Gospel principles
Given true priority
Gain eternal life.
Embrace Charity;
Blessings follow those who give
Of service and love.
Be kind to your friends;
Neither is their task easy.
All await good will.
Life is a river;
And until God calls a halt
Wickedness will flow.

    Yes, unfortunately I believe there will always remain some evil in the world. Without evil would we truly know what goodness is? (Report) Reply
