A letter to myself

Dear me,

Live not to please the world
for the world may displease you
Live not as you please
for you may displease the world

love not with conditions
for conditions bring pain
love not for reasons
for the reasons may change

Blame not the past
for it could have been
Fear not the future
for it seems to be

Smile because you received
the love of many
smile cos you gained
the respect of any

Cry when you cannot
take it anymore
Cry pour your heart
that's what tears are for

Forget the sorrows
low level unhappiness
Forget the mistakes
of moment's happiness

Remember the good times
and the lessons you learned
Remember your family,
true friends and me

with love
me again

I suspect we all talk to ourselves sometimes, but rarely with such insightful good advice. I shall read this from time to time when I need a good "talking to."
