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

    They say that the strings of the heart can be used as fishing line, and you definitely lured me in with this comforting poem; well done.
