Keep It Simple Poem by Bill Grace

Keep It Simple

Rating: 4.2


Keep it simple
So the past can find you
The love you lacked the courage to love
The one who was kind
The one who told truth
The one you want to thank
The one whose feet you would kiss
as contrition and in sorrow
Keep it simple
If you want the past to find you.

Good advice always. Simple is best. Why complicate things? Poem is very well done. Good choice for poem of the day.

I like this one Bill. Happiness blooms naturally in the hearts of those who are inwardly free and that if finding yourself abandoned by wealth and honor, and forced to live in humble circumstances—grieve not. Welcome, rather, the new adventure that life has placed before you. If your dreams lie in ruin all about you, bravely adjust to your altered circumstances (Paramhansa Yogananda) .

Yes, Bill, simplicity works both in Life and in your poem. I believe Tolsoi said much the same thing about writing. And he knew a thing or two. Well done and a deserving Poem of the Day. Tom Billsborough

One should never overlook the power of simplicity, which is a most appealing characteristic in a human being. Some love to complicate everything and are not happy unless they succeed at doing just that. Life is so much easier to live when we introduce simplicity into our lives and you have expressed this very finely in the words of this excellently crafted poem. Applause well deserved! Thank you for sharing and heartiest congratulations on having 'Poem Of The Day! ' Well deserved...
