The World Is A Beautiful Place

 Earth, Globe, Protection, Planet

You may be going through tough times... Your pace in life might seem slow. You've probably been knocked down on several occasions.

No matter how many times you've wept over the loss of beloved ones and valuable items. No matter how many times you've wished you were not born at all.

No matter how ugly your experiences and stories are. No matter how hurting your life currently is.

Our circumstances are not enough to deny the fact that: the world is a beautiful place to be.

The world is a beautiful place, the world is fun-filled and it's overflowing with abundance that is enough to go round for everyone to enjoy.

Read the poem below and be inspired to start seeing how beautiful the world is.

The world is a beautiful place


The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind happiness
not always being
so very much fun
if you don't mind a touch of hell now and then
just when everything is fine
because even in heaven
they don't sing
all the time

The world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't mind some people dying
all the time
or maybe only starving
some of the time
which isn't half bad
if it isn't you

Oh the world is a beautiful place
to be born into
if you don't much mind
a few dead minds
in the higher places
or a bomb or two
now and then in your upturned faces
or such other improprieties
as our Name Brand society
is prey to
with its men of distinction
and its men of extinction
and its priests
and other patrolmen

and its various segregations
and congressional investigations
and other constipations
that our fool flesh
is heir to

Yes the world is the best place of all
for a lot of such things as
making the fun scene
and making the love scene
and making the sad scene
and singing low songs and having inspirations
and walking around
looking at everything
and smelling flowers
and goosing statues
and even thinking
and kissing people and
making babies and wearing pants
and waving hats and
dancing
and going swimming in rivers on picnics
in the middle of the summer
and just generally 'living it up'
Yes
but then right in the middle of it
comes the smiling
mortician
