🤗 A Better Life ~ It’s Not the Easy Path, It May be the Better Path

If we hold our counsel we’ll make fewer enemies and have fewer regrets. When we tell others what they should do, little good can come from our wisdom. When we’re sure we’re right, it’s hard to be silent. If we value the relationship we may have to watch those we love stumble and fall. At times, the best we can do is to offer a hand when someone we love stumbles.

🌾 Today’s Poem ~ If


e. e. cummings

If freckles were lovely, and day was night,
And measles were nice and a lie warn’t a lie,
Life would be delight,—
But things couldn’t go right
For in such a sad plight
I wouldn’t be I.

If earth was heaven and now was hence,
And past was present, and false was true,
There might be some sense
But I’d be in suspense
For on such a pretense
You wouldn’t be you.

If fear was plucky, and globes were square,
And dirt was cleanly and tears were glee
Things would seem fair,—
Yet they’d all despair,
For if here was there
We wouldn’t be we.
