IF LIFE...


If life is a gift
then gossip it.
If life is a reward
then avenge it.
If life is funny
then laugh it.
If life is a dept
then pay it.
If life is wide
then accommodate it.
If life is peaceful
then relax with it.
If life is pain
then love it.
If life is expensive
then price it
If life is a mystery
then understand it.
If life is war
then fight it.
If life is spiritual
then appease it.
If life is God
then WORSHIP it.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
