    The Pinnacle Emotion (New Beatitudes)

    The pinnacle emotion is high,
    A place for anyone to reach-
    It is a reason to rejoice,
    And yet, its loss makes us weep.

    In the midst of suffering,
    Love remains kind-
    It has no part with envy,
    Arrogance is nothing in its mind.

    You shall not find it rude,
    But always considerate of others-
    Love is not affiliated with hate-
    Evil is not its brother.

    It scorns of things unrighteous
    And encourages that which is pure-
    It never leaves one to bear a burden,
    But uplifts a sister or brother.

    It will give hope to those without,
    And endure the times that are frail-
    When all else breaks man down,
    Love shall never fail!

    Yes, and many others. Poetry is a way for me to release pent-up emotions. Here's another one of my favorites that has always helped remind me when I'm going to make decisions.

    Death is the Weather Vein

    If we shall call life a foundation,
    Death is the weather vein-
    If we shall say life is the beginning,
    Death shall be its end.

    As people reflect upon the vein,
    They'll see the direction you walked-
    How you had made it through the storms-
    If you had ever stopped.

    Did you point to the place
    Where the wind directed you to,
    Or did you refuse to turn
    Afraid of what it meant for you?

    They'll look from the foundation
    To the utmost tip-
    Everything that's in between
    Will show how your life was spent-

    Did you show great interest in value
    And keep your standards high?
    Were details tediously smoothed
    And the materials kept looking bright?

    They'll build their lives like yours
    So you better keep it sane-
    You never know who's being guided
    By what's below your weather vein.
