...but I must find my way


~~ Sometimes my mind seems not big enough to fully comprehend why people act the way they do. I am not able to understand the reasons for hatred, malice, malevolence.
I do no understand why people, to whom once you have stretched a helping hand, choose to become ignorant to your needs.
~~I prefer to believe in and focus on the good half of each individual I encounter. I live with the conviction that each person carries Light and Goodness within it. And that there is something valuable in each of us - a talent, a virtue, a lesson, an idea.
~~ But many times I have been proven to be wrong. And many have answered to my goodness and empathy with malice and ignorance. And that hurts.....a lot.
~~ This poem below is not a very flucky piece of poetry but I'll share it with you.
It was written as a response to another poem, written by someone else. The other poem had a totally different message and was written in a very self-centered way - that's why I felt the need to write this one down.
~~ Here in this picture is my grandma, my wonderful and dearly loved grandma. She taught me to be good and show kindness to everyone.
~~ Thank you for stopping by, for bearing with me and sticking around:)

The Good Man
by 2na/T.O.S

The Good Man …

The Good Man is there,

Not pure, not perfect, not a saint


But The Good Man is there

Born by the power of God and all angels

Made by the power of own choice and will.



The Good Man is there-

Fighting his demons,

Erasing all possible masks,

Taking his chance,

Standing up for his beliefs

even when the world stands against.



The Good Man exists

Somehow there is a Good Man in all of us

It’s up to our choice to reveal his face to the world…



The Good Man is not strong as a wall

But he finds himself in an endless war with himself and his demons.

The Good Man is not perfect

But he finds himself in a ceaseless seeking of beauty and harmony.

The Good Man is not holy

But his passions find their roots in his seeking of truth.



The Good Man is there

But you won’t see him if you look for perfection

Being good is nothing easy

It takes patience, faith, trust and love

…for yourself and for the others

It takes Time, Strength and Errors.



The Bad Man is there too

But don’t despise him..

What would the Good Man be without the Bad Man?



The Good Man…

The Good Man is there

Not pure, not perfect, not a saint.

What did I always tell you? Head up and I don't wanna hear any "Yeah, sure, whatever you say", Keep your head up strongly. You know what F*** them, what do you care? You think the wheels won't turn at some point. I know you needed those but "if it's supposed to happen then the Universe will work in your favor" until that happens you have to prove you are worthy. So stop complaining and work to get what you wish for.

PS. I like the poem love.

Est-ce que l'Homme bon existe...?
Ce texte est magnifique... même si je dois user en partie de mon traducteur ! Mais ça va, ce n'est pas trop compliqué à traduire !
J'aime ce texte car il est empli de tolérance et dit que tout est possible en quelque sorte...!

Bises...
A bientôt !

Doina this is beautiful poem. And you are one smart cookie. You know I always thought why waste energy on the negative. The positive in our lives is lot more powerful. Even during hard times I put smile on my face, and it gets me through. Doina powerful post, thanks for sharing, and thanks for the encouragement my dear. Anna :)

Hi there! For someone so young to believe deeply in the light and goodness in everyone and to question malice and negative behavior, be proud of yourself! It took me to get to my 40's to stand strong in these beliefs. You are on the right track!! :)You will set a beautiful example for others who need you to be exactly that!

(Mark 10:18) Jesus said to him: “Why do you call me good? Nobody is good, except one, God.

Don't you find this passage interesting. Every so often it pops up into my head when I call some one good...Because I now know it is realative in comparison with God's perfect goodness.

I found your poem interesting aswell. What a deep thinker you are.

Thanks for signing up to follow my blog.

Chow for now
