Life’s Frailties

Life is so fragile.

Success doesn’t fill you.

Wealth doesn’t save you.

A job doesn’t protect you.

Admirers can’t assure you.


Happiness can be elusive.

Contentment fades quickly.

Mental anguish isn’t partial;

Whether rich or poor,

Popular or unknown.


So take care of your mind.

Don’t put off being happy.

Say a kind word to someone;

Everyone has burdens to bear.

You never know what someone is going through.
