Life - An Evergreen Creeper - Poem by Bernedita Rosinha Pinto

Don't make enemies love you less
don't make friends love you more;
don't make Gods to bless you less
don't make hypocrites praise you more;
don't make teachers grade you low
don't make experiences tire you more;
don't make seas to drown your spirits
don't make oceans to carry away your soul;
don't make the wicked so unhappy
don't make the foes to hate you endlessly;
don't cry more than your eyes can permit
don't be more content than your heart needs;
don't fear death as much as it should fear you
don't rush and fall in that emptiness of life
don't fear love and let not life fear you...
for life is an evergreen creeper and as you grow,
your love will keep circling around everyone
entwining them, bringing them closer to you
in sincerity, in honesty, in humbleness,
in the reflection of your own self.
