Let me but live my life from year to year,
With forward face and unrelenting soul;
Not hurrying to, nor turning from the goal;
Not mourning for the things that disappear
In the dim past, nor holding back in fear
From what the future veils; but with a whole
And happy heart, that pays its toll
To Youth and Age, and travels on with cheer.
So let the way wind up the hill or down,
O'er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy,
Still seeking what I sought when but a boy,
New friendship, high adventure, and a crown,
My heart will keep the courage of the quest,
And hope the road's last turn will be the best.

nice poem! galing ng author..ReplyDelete
Amy, I feel so depressed, the bad news of one of my love ones overwhelmed me, I cannot accept the fact that he cannot live long.. it keeps haunting my mind, is this depression? My spiritual life comes tumbling down.. I cannot focus properly since yesterday, I need some stronghold.. Will God be able to help me? I am turning to Him now..ReplyDelete
why cant I accept it yet? Perhaps by ranting it out, I will feel better? oh Amy, life is such... i hope i m not stressing myself up..
Sorry to rant it out here, Amy...
the meaning of the poem is so deep.. now lang ulit ako naka-visit, mejo busy ako.. happy weekend Amy..ReplyDelete
Been hearing some news of death lately, she's dead he's dead... you know sometimes this kind of news haunts you.ReplyDelete
just came back visitng her good old friend,her mother died last week,i was sad for a while as consoling her.
Man will never stop looking for LIFE, but most of the times we are lost looking for it. So what do we want exactly in life, i guess is to simply live life today, excepting to live again tomorrow...
hey good weekend
