SHORT POEMS: “Aims For Life” by Trina Graves


Aims For Life:

Time is precious… Do not waste it.
Love is the most important possession… Possess it, Feel it, Give it to all.
Look after your mind… Use it often by studying and continual learning.
Look after your body… Work it regularly and feed it healthily.
Look after your Soul… Meditate, Pray, Develop.
Help others whenever you can.
Cherish this world.. And all living things on it.
Be happy… Enjoy your life.

    Thank you for sharing this one Amira. (for those who don’t know) this was the very first thing I wrote, after my first attempt at meditation in 1993.
