What is a friend?

Untitled What is a friend? I will tell you. It is a person with whom you dare to be yourself.  Your soul can be naked with him. He seems to ask of you to put on nothing, only to be what you are. He does not want you to be better or worse. When you are with him, you feel as a prisoner feels who has been declared innocent. You do not have to be on your guard. You can say what you think, so long as i ...[Read More]

Opportunity

Opportunity  They do me wrong who say I come no more When once I knock and fail to find you in; For every day I stand outside your door, And bid you wake, and rise to fight and win. Wail not for precious chances passed away. Weep not for golden ages on the wane! Each night I burn the records of the day; At sunrise every soul is born again. Laugh like a boy at splendors that have sped; To vanished ...[Read More]

Indispensable

Indispensable

Indispensable Sometime, when you’re feeling important, Sometime, when your ego’s in bloom, Sometime, when you take it for granted, You’re the best qualified in the room. Sometime, when you feel that your going, Would leave an unfillable hole, Just follow this simple instruction, And see how it humbles your soul. Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in it up to the wrist; Pull ...[Read More]
