Desiderata

One of my all time favourite poems. It was told to me by my Mum when I was quite young and didn’t fully comprehend it.

However over the years it resonates with me more and more.

I keep a small copy of this in my wallet along with a copy of Rudyard Kipling’s “IF”, which is another brilliant poem, along the same theme of humility.
