As You Go Through Life by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Don't look for the flaws as you go through life;    And even when you find them, It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind    And look for the virtue behind them. For the cloudiest night has a hint of light    Somewhere in its shadows hiding; It is better by far to hunt for a star,    Than the spots on the sun abiding. The current of life runs ever away    To the bosom of God's great ocean. Don't set your force 'gainst the river's course    And think to alter its motion. Don't waste a curse on the universe--    Remember it lived before you. Don't butt at the storm with your puny form,    But bend and let it go o'er you. The world will never adjust itself    To suit your whims to the letter. Some things must go wrong your whole life long,    And the sooner you know it the better. It is folly to fight with the Infinite,    And go under at last in the wrestle; The wiser man shapes into God's plan © Ella Wheeler Wilcox #PoetryTTN #LookInside
