Poetry…Friday?

25 Jan

I’M SORRY I’M A HORRIBLE PERSON! I just have issues with commuting to doing something regularly without reminding myself (except watch Glee every Thursday at 8), so I suppose I’ll share poetry with you all now?
This next poem isn’t mine, but I just really like it, so I’m sharing it with you all!

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths
by Philip James Bailey

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
And he whose heart beats quickest lives the longest:
Lives in one hour more than in years do some
Whose fat blood sleeps as it slips along their veins.
Life’s but a means unto an end; that end,
Beginning, mean, and end to all things—God.
The dead have all the glory of the world.

Well, lovely dreamers, I hope you enjoyed this Poetry Friday, and that it inspired you to go out and do something remarkable!

Peace, Love, and Remarkable Doings,
Cassidy
