The ABCs of Life




I Sit in the shadows of my book
What I see are clear letters with nary a doubt
I see that happiness is outlined in every word
And I wondered at pictures it conjured

And it goes like this :-

To find the respect you want you flick to the letter that touches your heart
and the first picture that came to mind is the one taught way down before time
it said,
Love your neighbours as you would Love yourself

For to harp for a beginning I am trying to find time, I end up with a season that
I'll read to you another time for I am busy with my life right now and it conjured a
picture of "Rush"
It said
Do not forget that time runs your life like the speeding train I wrote of once, you miss
a second and its lost - forever gone

To regret the wasted time - I bequest you to trace the line of forgiveness
It said
Forgive yourself for your shortcomings and you'll find regret not in your dictionary

Reveal the glow of happiness, when you see beauty in every word and it consumes
the depth of you and you glow deep within too
It said
My beauty formed in my mind, one day I wrote a word that rhymed and looked back
to see the world pass by and in a magical way I drowned in my lines

Never to drown in your sorrows for they don't last
Don't hurry and miss the real boat
Life brings happiness, it does not choose
Your outlook throws you life's hook
and to conclude
The more learned you become
You realize you don't know it all
And so continue to your next chapter 
for there is more for you to read and be informed...
