A Better Me


I strive to find a better me,
a person just and true.
I want to live and not just be,
to be decent through and through.

I need to be a stronger me,
both in body and in soul.
It's not a whim, it needs to be,
for me to feel whole.

I will be that better me,
and that better me will stay.
I will be better, they'll see,
it's time to seize the day!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
