Came across this poem today and thought I should share. Its good to keep positive thoughts in your life, even when life throws you challenges! Promise yourself that you will read this and take it to heart, its good advice.
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them
to look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have not time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for
fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the
world, not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

It’s been awhile since I’ve done Kids Corner-Empathy, but I came across this beautiful uplifting poem that I thought needed to be shared.
You’re my star – I set fire to our fiery rose Bouquet of stars – I hand to you –We’re opposites, like poetry and proseYou came out of the blue, I’m left without a clue! It all came so soon – the package of surprisesAll along, you were echoing your leaveAnybody out there to help me? Hello? I can’t hear your echoYour echo is what keeps me on my feet I’m a believer…I’m getting discreetAround and round and round, We’re going round in circlesWe’re doing freestyle singing Swinging side by side…back and forth, Our fate keeps on swinging…Who will fill in the gaps? I never saw the light in goodbye… I’m caving in my ruins…I’m caving in my ruins I admit it – I can’t live without you, Lingering around me like a fly, enchanted by the lightbulb What am I supposed to do with this work of art? I’ve stumbled upon you and fell in love with youBut, I’m lost in paradise – dropping levels – there’s mistakes we can’t undoThere’s no perfect peace with the world falling at the seams, kissing the debris, Screwing with my head…you won’t ever see a trace of tears on my face – I’m left to be All alone, all along…but without you, I’m stranded in the wilderness…Giving me night-scares instead of dreams of reality I can’t hear your echo of empathy…I can hear chaos unraveling; I can hear the commotion of the oceanFalling victim to bittersweet emotion I can’t hear your echo of empathy…I can barely make out any hope in store I miss living my dream! I keep tell you that! – and all you do is ignore I’m on edge and I get upset and cry my eyes outNo one can love this monster, but I won’t accept such foolishness I strayed from my heart’s passion and I got all the symptoms Of a guy with a solitary, silver soul….you stole my dignityMy pride, my surreal sensations, my innocence Don’t dismiss me as nonsense Echo your empathy… I’m brokenhearted, but I won’t reveal it to you – you never felt for meSo, don’t even bother to ask me why I’m crying? ’Cause I’ll never give you the full truth Almost all my life, I’ve been searching for the woman I love…and to find my heart’s tuneBut, love didn’t seem like enough – good luck will shower upon me soon You and I will view the astounding full moon… Find your way out of the maze of bewildermentI’m treading this rocky road with or without you – I can’t stand tallYou are playing games with me, nourishing my resentmentI’m swimming home – underneath the surface, feeling oh so blueFeeling the rejection…the jaded corruption banging at my skull I heard you screaming out my name Are you echoing your praise to me? Are you covering up my shame? Are you echoing my empathy? Echo your empathy… my delightful dolphin in the sea I’m screaming at the top of my lungsWhen I close my eyes, everything seems so fine Is my love good enough for you? I can hear you echo your empathyMy voice is fading and dying out, but you’re my baby… My darling angelic friend of mine Our friendship mixed with love is as succulent as wineListen to my echoes of my appreciation towards you I could make out your echo of empathyEcho your empathy of ecstasy! Give me your all…whisper in my ears I’ve been lost for many-a-years Come out of your black hole and rescue from my demiseEcho your empathy upon me if can be so kind and wise Pursue our zealous goals and we’ll echo our triumphI don’t wanna bleed without you I don’t wanna breathe without you I wanna see your face, glistening with graceGleaming with grace and I feel like I can beat this race I feel so alive for the first time in a lifetime For the first time in forever, you make me feel happy and oh so sublimeOur exaltation is beyond amazing… I can’t get yah out of my head You’re my lullaby – I set fire to the pitch-black sky and I ascend so wondrouslyThe fiery rose – I give it to you – it’s a gift that’s articulate and almost flawless You blossomed like a precious rose in the Garden of GloryWe’re opposites, like black and white, but you and I will never kiss the abyssEcho your empathy…my munificent maid!You’ve grown so much, miss! I can’t put my mind to bed…it’s racing with thoughts of you always and forever It’s racing with thoughts, blooming so trueEcho your words of wisdom and hide not in shadows anymore (your hope’s a blur) – Come out of your shell and stop being so insecureEcho your empathy and you’ll be part of my crew
