Good Feelings


It pains me most
When man cheats or
Physically or mentally
Hurts a fellow man.

Man's desire to expand
And cling to absolute power
Are obstacles to bringing
Peace and order in the world.

One must feel successful
When others around do so
One must work hard
To make others succeed.

Even the need for
Self defense shouldn't
Arise when man acts
Like a man should.

When one leaves the world
What'll the soul ever need?
It's only while here this moment
It matters to have good feelings.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
