The Benefit of Light

  • By Jim McMillen
Product Description
Authors note of IntroductionPoetry is more than just words of rhyme, It's a style of attitude Seeing the beauty of life, however hard the time.The acceptance of nature, by showing gratitude.To me, poetry, at least my style of poetry, is a vehicle. My vehicle.Designed to take me where I feel I need to be. To enable me to not merely survive, but thrive, and soar victoriously towards the experience of fulfillment.It is also a roadmap of where I've been. Designed with the intent of exposing the pot holes that I've found in this journey known as life. Potholes so deep that you may find you've spent your lifetime trying to climb back up to the surface, just to get back on track.Hopefully with a greater understanding of, there has to be a lesson in this and probably more than one way to continually benefit from it. By following the light of understanding. An understanding that tells me, so far I know nothing Nothing except; I'm on the right path.One that reveals more beauty and harmony than I have ever imagined. Especially when taken in contrast to the pain life can sometimes inflict.It has taught me that when life offers you ugliness, it is only trying to teach you the value of beauty and give you the opportunity to discover the cause of its demise. When beauty starts to fade you're either looking away, or not looking hard enough.So start seeing what you're looking at, instead of trying to ignore, And you will see that life is worth the price.Because it is so much richer; than it was before, You found this Poet's; Paradise.I pray that you might find beauty not yet expired, And help it flourish, by bathing it in simplicityTurning Wounds Into Wisdom.Pain has to be more than just suffering the consequences of a mistake.It is the releasing of the hurt, creating a void.A void which is to be filled with the knowledge of that experience.Those are the two main tools for any improvement.The more that you use those tools the bigger improvement you create.So if you must experience pain, try to gain knowledge from it.I BelieveI believe that scars are put upon your heart to protect the tenderness inside.They give you the understanding to know what to let enter in, and the strength to let it never get away.Thank you for joining me on this journeyWhen you've turned the last pageI hope you will have retainedThe momentum of a littlePoetry in motion.Come grow with me.Jim McMillen
