Live and Let Live

Updated on October 23, 2015
Source

This is a poem is about how we should not make life a misery for others around us.

We should live and let others live in peace.

We should co-exist in peace and harmony.


Live and let live,

Be happy and carefree,

But do not make other people,

Lives a misery.


Live and let live,

Do all that you want,

But on your way, remember,

Do no one else harm,


Live and let live,

Achieve all your dreams,

Do not hinder others,

Let them achieve their dreams.


Live and let live,

Or you will not have any friends,

You will have freezing winters,

And not a flower to scent.


Live and let live,

Or you will not find true love,

All your cunning and guile,

Will put people off somehow.


Live and let live,

Open your eyes and see,

There is plenty, in abundance,

For everyone in this realm.


Live and let live,

Or you will be filled with misery,

A dark, gloomy shadow,

Will haunt you for eternity.

Live and let live.

      Vellur,

      you are so right. We have to do no harm to others. People need help and we are here to do just that in our writing. Positivity is the way. Both you and I have found our purpose in life and are well placed to be so successful in this....I just know it.

      The vote is up/awesome

      So True with a capitol T. Can you anonymously send this to my family and family in law. Let them know I was busy enjoying life... Thanks... Jk but would be so awesome if that did happen.

      Awesome poem for misery, it can keep them company.

      Cruelkindness (Subliminally Thoughtless)

      I know I'm being a little cruel but kind to you. So... It eliminates each other...

      Just keeping the balance throughout the world ;•)

      Very nice... great poem! Unfortunately those that focus on others mishaps do not realize there fate: Or you will be filled with misery,

      This is so true, Vellur! I don't understand why so many people want to dictate how others live. Well said here. That "Live and Let Live" photo--I have that in my garage on an old piece of wood that someone made into a picture. It's pretty cool. Great hub. Lots of votes.
