:: Poems: The Goodness You See In Others... (Spirituality)
 
All my life I had been a wailer
I went around bitching & cribbing
Using my words like poison
And my tongue like sting

Needless to say,
I wasn't accepted by many
I bitched about the world
And the world scorned me

Then one day, life took a turn
met a wise man on the way
Who could manage to smile at me
And even had good things to say

With a soul touched by his affection
I began to moan
"Give me the secret of your joy.
Tell me how can I atone?"

In a calm tone he replied
"You need to see beyond appearances.
The world merely reflects your soul.
The goodness you see in others is the goodness you possess."
