What you see’s a broken soul

Who’s destiny unfolds

Revealing how a heart can turn cold

With lessons far too great to leave untold


Imagine if you dare

A love that went unshared

The loneliness, the darkness of despair

Leaving live with no one there to care


So go on and drink your fill

Of life’s beauty and its thrills

Its our only chance to live this time we kill

So do what makes you happy, live your will


Keep your memories safe at hand

Heal and love as best you can

Do no harm to any woman, child or man

Don’t pretend that you are wise or understand


There’s no calling to abide

Its your choices that you ride

So choose to give and share the love inside

Don’t choose to runaway, don’t choose to hide


In your heart you know what’s right

And come the morning light

Your choices will bring harm or bring delight

So be good as good can be with all your might


What is done is what is done

And come the setting sun

Your legacy’s the race that you have run

The die is cast, and eternities now begun.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. And because of your uplifting thoughts, you have greatly helped me achieve more happiness!!

Very profound and thought provoking write. We can be the first part or the last..I prefer the latter.

Reviewed by Sandie May Angel-Joyce 2/13/2009
What we choose to learn in our lifetime
is ours to keep for eternity.

We learn what we want to learn,
and others learn what THEY want to learn too.

But each hold the lessons close to their hearts
and transform them into valuable memories.

No one lesson learned is same as another's lesson,
for we all walk different paths.

At the end of the journey,
We are the one who will face God alone...

Sandie Angel :o)
