The rules of life

Nothing in this world can take your smile away

Nothing on the Earth can set you limits today

Don't let people control your feelings

Just do what your heart beats for and is good for you!

Do not want more

Than you really need, let your mind be the only compass that leads.

Live for your happiness but remember, that real happiness isn't terrestrial

Beyond death there's nothing left to own

Even your thoughts will be shown...

    Wonderful poem to describe how to take our life in control.

    Well said. You are in control of YOU.

  • The mind is a grand landscape, an undiscovered country. This was quite clever and well-wrought! Write on!

  • I loved the secondary poem of the words in bold. Excellent work Anna

    What a lovely poem and message. How very true that our thoughts control us, and sometimes not for the best. Well done.

    Wow… “ nothing can control you more than your own thoughts.” Brilliant! So so true ❤️😉❤️

    Good job! If I might offer a critique, or suggestion, I think you should be write a poem that begins with (or at least is centered around) this part: "Live for your happiness but remember, that real happiness isn't terrestrial Beyond death there's nothing left to own Even your thoughts will be shown..." Exploring this idea and theme has the potential for a stronger poem, in my opinion. It works as it is, but I think you could expand on it more and make it even stronger.
