A Psalm Of Life

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Wow...this poem is just what I need right now. I have always struggled with people telling one to just live for the day and not the future. But I like the way this poet has put his. Nice one!
Great poem. Instead of grousing about things we must put in our best efforts and hope for the best. Thanks for the poem with a great message.
