Gratitude


The oil of sorrow will fry only malice 
What comes of it will make for poor choice

Yet of people there are so many
Who likes to mould life through their dark foundry

What good will a smile of poison bring 
Wont tears of joy make for a happier spring?

A drop from the fountain of joy
Is always worth every ploy

Now, life is only lived once,
but when filled with empathy, will feel like eons

A little reflection by the river
will do wonders to the ego filled desire

Strange however is the refusal of the soul
to look within and realise the foul

To criticise and defame is ever so easy
Alas to earn respect and love, a little uneasy

I wish a lot of us could think this way and rid ourselves of some much un-needed muck that we have gathered all along. Great lines. Thank you!

On another note, i'd like to believe that it isn't the soul that 'dispermits' introspection. The enemy is the self, "the individual person as the object of his or her own reflective consciousness." Or so, i think! :-)

Deep Rakesh! True, the enemy is the self!
