Personal ~ Langston Hughes

Personal

God addressed me a letter.

In an envelope marked:

Personal

I have given my answer.

Don’t Worry if Your Job is Small

Don’t worry if your job is small,

And your reward are few.

Remember that the mighty oak,

Was once a nut like you.

We Cannot Live Without Love ~ Pope John Paul II

We Cannot Live Without Love

 We cannot live without love.
If we do not encounter love,
If we do not experience it and make it our own,
And if we do not participate intimately in it,
Our life is meaningless.
Without love we remain incomprehensible to ourselves.

Pope John Paul II

Stop Being So Religious ~ Hafiz

Stop Being so Religious 

Stop Being So Religious
What
Do sad people have in
Common?

It seems
They have all built a shrine
To the past
And often go there
And do a strange wail and
Worship.

What is the beginning of
Happiness?
It is to stop being
So religious
Like That.

Crossing the Bar ~ Tennyson

Crossing The Bar 

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Song ~ Poem About Love by Sara Teasdale

SONG

  Love me with your whole heart
     Or give no love to me,

  Half-love is a poor thing,
     Neither bond nor free.

  You must love me gladly
     Soul and body too,
  Or else find a new love,
     And good-by to you.
