Conscious With Purpose


The only time given to any of us that comes,
Are those moments we stay aware...
That a taking it for granted,
To walk on paths of despair...
Without believing every minute of it,
Could be changed if we decided...
The time given to us that comes,
Only can be improved...
If that choice is made and accepted,
As long as we remain conscious with purpose.

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:
