The Value of Joy (Poem)

Joy

An unstoppable stream of Strength

Created in the future to live in the present

The strength that prone to Action

An impenetrable resistor to any opposition

A receiver of divine transmission

A regulator of condition

A death that brings about new birth

A calm that translate knowledge into wisdom

A doctor that diagnosis the body

He accept failure as outcome

And see success as temporal boost

Never attach to event

But involve in all

No wonder, it is said-

The Joy of the Lord shall be my strength

Thank you for the poem. I like to think that Joy is what is left when we give up everything to possess it. =: )

Thanks !

Happiness is quick to act because it is as just for a moment but

Joy is calulative and slow to act because it can last for a life time
