Y... Food For The Soul

Rating: 4.8
Food for the body

I know of men, who do not have enough,
Lacking food and drink, their life is rough
Day in, day out they struggle for food
There is no time for any other good

Food for the ego

I know of men who have enough food and drink
So they have time for something else to think
Their egos are hungry for money, power and fame
Getting more, being restless, an endless game

Food for the soul

I know of men who are contented with how they live
They focus on soul and never cease to give
To give love and support, perform acts randomly kind
They are the ones who have at any time peace of mind

Hans you did a wonderful job with this one. I am surprised you had only 9 on your vote. You deserve double of 10. I think I will stay with you and read all your works. You are an observer, which I do. We are together.

A triangle of life: Body, Soul, and Mind and you reveal all their need, a food but different goods...but after all each run and attached to each other...Healthy body come from Mind and it shaped by soul...No matter how much body eat, if mind feed ego it poisoned soul later it creating hatred flesh...When soul feed well but body eat less mind go slow...A triangle of life need healthy body with soulful and sober mind to work as human...hahahahaha what am i talking about: P but it really related :) _Unwritten Soul

There's all kinds of people in the world, but may we choose to pattern after the good examples. Also, I wish many would bring more attention to hunger. Poverty is a real problem in today's world. Fine job. Great food for thought, Hans. Thanks.
