KNOWLEDGE OF SELF

KNOWLEDGE OF SELF


An enemy, 
A friend in waiting
Could be
And 
A friend 
An enemy in the
Offing, 
All depend on our knowledge
Of others
That in turn depends
On 
How well ourselves we 
Know!

    I like having good perception about life, It helps in having good knowledge about myself. However, i am my own friend and enemy.. I live with the demons I created after getting to know myself better these last few years... always~ Linda

    Dear Russel, you are so right! First we have to be friends with ourselves before even try to be friends with others!
