Verse To An Unhappy Person

 I ‘know’ a man who writes like a dream; fine poetry, deep, erudite - but suffering. Oh, how he suffers in his verse!  And so, I felt myself forced to reply in kind - my kind.
 I start off by quoting one of his weaker adjectival descriptions and base my response on his picture of life.

Verse To An Unhappy Person

Man is ‘weak’ but man is strong!
The ego always plans to stay,
But strengths and insights
Can and want to rule the day.

Do not dream, do not desire.
Aspire to maturity, the spirit’s liberty.
Leave childhood memories behind.
Continue climbing into mind
Where you will find
The optimistic peace you dearly, daily long for.
Be strong for this.
Its not far off – a kiss away.
You do not want to miss its entry.
Have a nice and healthful day!
