So the Stoics Say

Life is full of pain and woe,
So the Stoics say,
But the trick is easy to see —
Don’t let it get to thee.

You decide what’s fair or foul.
It’s a judgment that you make.
It’s not the world that’s out of whack.
It’s your judgment, it’s very slack.

Select your judgments carefully
And you will no doubt be
A person who disarms harm —
Turns it to a funny yarn.

All Poetry — Henry Barnard
