Note to self

Be not hurt by unkind words or raging anger,
Be not felled by tumultuous whispers;
But hear, unnerved by tone or slight,
Unmoved by belligerence or hate.

Neither wrath, nor the glutton,
But the poisons of those base
And so vile,  eat away
All that is good and worthy of life.

Don't be afraid,
But apologize for your faults,
And thank for praises that be,
But never be consumed by pride.

People may come and people may go,
But you go on forever;
All that lasts as time moves on,
Are those pillars-of laughter, of life.

A friend is forever,
Or at least till you forget yourself.
