Does this life ever get you down? Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed with the news you see on TV or read in the papers? There is war and rumors of war. There is air pollution, global warming and so much bad news that sometimes I feel like I would rather hear no news at all. This poem is my way of saying, “I refuse to give in to negative thoughts.



It’s a wonderful world of high technology.

We have medical knowledge to cure the heart, cancer as well as psychology.


It’s a world that holds hope so why do we feel so depressed.

Could it be that the reason is we feel the need to make others feel impressed?


What is it about the coming century that we find so unknown?

Could it be the seeds of the past that we and our fathers before have sown?


The future could be so bright with space stations, better health and more

Or it could be the end of our world due to nuclear war.


I would like to offer this simple hint to you.

Do not contemplate on the future for it begins today with what you say and do.


Do not worry about tomorrow’s fate for indeed it starts today.

We have the ability to start now so let us all say,


“I start now by loving my husband or wife;

My children, my neighbors for love can build a positive life.”


Today is the first day; a day to start over and grow.

If you understand that you know all you need to know.

Indeed, today is the first day of the rest of our lives - however long it may be. Each of us has the ability to choose the direction of our life and make it glorious or gloomy. A most insightful poem about living.
