The life poem that’s remarkably true.

Max Ehrmann, was a German poet in late 1800 early 1900’s. His poem Desiderata was unknown at that time and soon became known of after the use of spoken word.

LIFE POEM

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all it’s sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Desiderata
-Max Ehrmann

The endless thoughts

The endless thoughts

Within your day it is a time call the cool down stage. What if you don’t get to this stage in your day. You know what happens, for me at least, I write a poem, a thought or short story. I title it jotting my thoughts then I cherish it. When I do go back to reread  it’s so serene, reflected to be my cool down stage in words. To me and probably many aspiring writers this is the best time of the day, sort of speak.
