Anti-pessimism through thoughtful aphorism

July 10, 2012

It’s true that cream rises to the top
that we sow what we reap whatever the crop
that the best friend to have is truly yourself
wrapped in a blanket of loved-ones and health
character is set but personality we can choose
we decide to grow and win, or shrink and lose
our best and worst aspects are reflected around
by those in our orbit through sight, action and sound
to those I love within and without, both there and here
persevere, persevere, persevere………..persevere.
