In life there are many things that should not be spoken about

Keep It For Yourself

Many people say they did good deeds
But they don’t see to where this leads
They’re still waiting to see the reward
In the meantime they feel awkward
They think they should stop believing
As no prize they see themselves receiving
They keep asking, why did I toil in vain?
And for an answer they martyr their brain
They forget that every action big or plain
Carries in itself its best reward and gain
And what they expect as compensation
Is only a result of their own imagination
As my dear father’s saying set it:
Do good in your life and forget it
One day you will know why I said it
One day you will know why you did it
For myself I can see every day the result
I don’t talk about it; I leave it in my heart
As it is the only one who keeps the treasure
A good friend who knows the right measure
What’s in your heart does not like to be unveiled
Watched by anyone, spoken about or hailed
For the one who feels it and keeps his peace
The blessings of this friend will never cease.
Many people do not have this feeling
Even if they are praying and kneeling
Their time has not arrived for now
It may come soon, we don’t know how.

Emile, as always your poetry speaks to me. Yes I understand your thinking, I do keep most of what comes back to me to myself, but I also share pieces to give people hope that living in the light does work...

I am a light worker, I must shine for others to see and learn awareness that is my mission in life, it is what has been given to me as a journey.

Love, peace and lightness to you always,

I love what you write Emile, it is from your heart as any good we do for others should come from.

Someone once said that the good a man does privately will one day be made known beofre the angels, and the man who does his good deed for the reward he expects to get....well then, he has his reward, such as it is....

Well written,

Chiop Bergeron
