To Work or Not to Work.


Every day can be lovely if you open your mind
Face life as it is, do your best and unwind.
Some of us lives for work and be important,
Some of us spend time doing nothing for them work is unpleasant.

It is not the work, but what we learn through where we are now,
How we communicate with others & what we learn of life anyhow.
So, work hard or do nothing, your place is there to learn the secret,
Preferably with peace, happiness, easy living wish & positive deep-set.

Then you will find life's easy street,
You work only if you want and will find life sweet.
Will find how to enjoy everything,
With gratefulness in your heart everlasting.

    'Face life as it is, do your best and unwind.' I can say this is the main theme and message of all your poems and so realistic approach to life.
    This one is about conquest of happiness and reminder of great philosopher Bertrand Russel. Kudos dear Lasoaphia. (Report) Reply
