Poem of the day
You Smile Upon Your Friend To-day
by A. E. Housman
You smile upon your friend to-day,
To-day his ills are over;
You hearken to the lover's say,
And happy is the lover.
'Tis late to hearken, late to smile,
But better late than never;
I shall have lived a little while
Read complete poem
Let the world change you and you can change the world. (Deje el mundo cambiarle y usted puede cambiar el mundo.)

Miss Mercer For Real: Tired
I am so tired of waiting,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?

And cut the world in two -
And see what worms are eating
