Do better

Do better

A Poem by Quill

the Luther Strode principle

The past is gone
The future is yet to come
But the present must be harnessed 
One must not let the bygone linger
Or allow the unknown instill fear
All that must be considered is here and now
Hence there are no excuses or regret
No complaints or weaknesses
There shall only be conviction
One which breeds nothing but excellence
For we cannot change the past
And barely can we assure the future
The most important is the now
We must ensure we have improved from our yesterday
Our minds and hearts must be set on this course
And we shall acquire the will to progress
We must bear the mantle of greatness
And acquire the armor of effectiveness
Thereby drinking from the chalice of amelioration 
I am now committed to this course
And by doing so I shall be magnanimous 
Every form of suffering shall be abated
Every evil is diminished
All that is attained is pure
I will simply do better

Author's Note

an understanding of making things in life more meaningful by adopting the comic book character principle from "Legacy of Luther Strode" which is do better, involving not acting out of resentment or other negative emotions but by doing the best we possibly can at any given time.
