Poem By Macy (Nina) Dvirnak

It is a common saying,
That happiness is one thing
Which money cannot buy.

Although this be widespread knowlege,
This philosophy,
I must deny.

Why?

Because money does
Buy happiness,
For a fleeting while.

What is achieved is
A momentary excitement
And gleefulness -

Perhaps even a fading smile.

However, my freind -
This does not last.

Your happy pleasure
Rushes to an end -
And Alas!

Soon it be
In your past.

If, my friend,
Happiness is what you seek,
You shall have to keep
Running-
Chasing-
Grasping it
Again,
And Again!

You see,
Money can buy possessions,
And even the happiness
Of momentary pleasures.

However,
One thing still remains
Which money
Cannot -
Will not -
And shall NEVER buy -

Is something which
Only God can give:

The gift of eternal joy.

And so,
Dear freind -
You must decide!

What will it be?

Is it a glimps
Of happiness
Which you seek,

Or is it God's
Everlasting gift of joy?

To help you answer,
I will tell,
Which of these choices
I favor above all else -

I choose to continually go to God
To exchange,

My sorrows -

My sickness -

My worrries -

My cares -

My strife;

And exchange them
For God's permanent joy,
And His guiding hand
To hold my life.

Baby's Breath

Doubt ye not,
The power of words,

For they can build up,

Certain Death

There are many things in life,
That a person may find-

Uncertain.

However, dear friend-

Faulty Blame

Point not your fingers at someone else,
For the blame really lies within yourself.

Do not make up a good excuse,

Outspread Wings

I hear the excitement,
I see the faces,
Of all my family
And

It All Starts Here ≪3.

The choices you make today
Will effect you tomorrow.

However,

Common Sense, Or Not So Common?

If you possess,
An ignorant ear,
You will also possess,
Stumbling feet.
