Sweet Sweet Life

Our world,our country,our community,our home,
Where we live,learn,grow and play,
Where after life journey,no matter how short,
Our temple called flesh will lay,
So lets move with no delay,
To improve on our living each day,
Look around,see what needs to be done,
Lets approach it as if it's all about having fun,
Let not vanity lead you astray,
Or with you the devil will play,
Embrace God,have faith,please pray,
Live life, be considerate,give love,
And lets make our life a happy spiritual adventure....

    Happy to join you on this path, the reason it is narrow is that not enough people have chosen it. Another great message Richard. Have a great day and God Bless.

    The poem sits on the high pedestal of vision and foresight. An amazing write with a great message. The Greek philosopher Socrates preached virtue. He advised Athenians to shun the pursuit of wealth and pleasure. According to him only virtuous life leads to happiness. I can see a glimpse of this philosophy in your poem. Richard, Thanks also for your appreciation of my poem The Cry of Heart. -Mohammad

    Some great advice to keep life liveable; maybe it's time to look on the bright side of things and shed what we can't change. I'm with you in these wise words!
