Point of View

Beauty that we seek in others truest brings us peace,
Allows the good in heart and mind greatly to increase.
Enlightening the soul which helps to keep one whole,
And puts our kinder spirit fully in control.

Anger can spread like a deadly infection,
Turning us in the wrong direction.
We become so completely misguided,
Believing that nothing should be confided,
Isolating from family creates our own pain
Without support we will go insane.

By viewing others with patience and love
We prove that from pettiness we are above.
Reaching understanding without branding
Leads to expanding our mental commanding.

It's the way to find inner peace and joy,
While also our own hate we then destroy.
It's the knowledge that we all have flaws
And judging another should give us pause.

The only life you can control is your own
Tomorrow is for each of us unknown.
So live and love only for this day
Enjoy this time now come what may.

True joy you will comprehend
As you rest at each day's end.
Our ability to love is what we thwart
When we distort where we fall short.
Instead of supporting and being sporting
We are sorting the souls evil courting.
So remember your faith, hope and charity
And view the world not with severity

If you let the shadows within rule you
Unhappiness is all that will show through.
Anger will prevail over every detail
And you will only feel your own heart’s betrayal.

By seeing others with an open mind
Forgiveness for yourself you'll find.
All your aggression goes into recession
No longer in possession of past oppression.
But this is a journey that you must choose
To live for today it's your past you must lose.
History simply cannot be changed
Learn from the hurt, from past be estranged.
