Quote I Basically Live By

“Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you:

Until you have cultivated the habit of saying some kind word to those whom you do not admire:

Until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others,

You will neither be successful nor happy.”

– Napoleon Hill

Unpredictable Life

Life is a mystery

full of surprises

You will never know

what is going to happen

so just live through it.

Count your days

count your blessings

count your mistakes

before your life

is completely over.

Live and hope

love then get hurt

sin but regret

forgive with the heart

because time goes by fast.

Today some are alive

tomorrow they can be gone

Life is unpredictable

so live to the fullest.

Masked

You’re as clear as glass

and the nastiest maneuvering mess.

You have different personalities

and about thirty masks.

You guide others through the dungeon

with nothing to see,

Your heart’s darker than ebony

just like your selfless soul.

I called you a friend,

but now you’re my foe.

I was blinded not by your kindness,

but with the mask that you wore.

Game of Life

CHECKMATE!!!”

You exclaim.

“CHECKMATE!!!”

He exclaimed.

Chess, is a metaphor of life.

One that very few understand –

some by choice, while others remain blind.

There are rules to follow.

There are rules to break.

Some are bendable, some are mere cheats.

Know your moves and think everything through,

after all…

It only takes one mistake to end the game.

There are times you’re winning,

or maybe He is winning.

But at the end of the day it’s all about

the knowledge you use

and strategy to make.

Pawn. Bishop. Rook. Knight. Queen. King.

Pick a weapon, but remember:

CHOOSE WISELY.
