The Nature Of Things - Poem by Arnold Martin Olsen

Whether things are rosy
or things are sad
All we can do is live
one day at a time
It's often been said
that the grass is greener
on the other side
But what of the fellow
over there.
Does he feel any better?
I often sympathize
with friends
Who have lost a loved one
or who are sick.
Sharing each other's feelings
is only showing respect.
We're not called human
beings for nothing.
We're set apart from beast
We know that love is
part of us
From cradle to the grave.
So live your life
as best you can
Share feelings with
your fellow man
And strive to enjoy
"One day at a time".
