Poison Tree by William Blake – New Year Message

poison tree william blake
New year is just a day away. We know that you also know this fact 🙂
Our simple message through this poem is to tell you that – Do let go of all negative emotions & don’t nurture them
Allowing anger, grudge, hate to blossom within you is like letting the person who caused those emotions live rent free in your mind & heart. Tree is just a outcome of what you sow. If anger is sown then you reap poison
It’s ok even if you can’t forgive but please do forget anything that doesn’t make you feel nice. Holding on to it is like handling fire – it can kill everyone around including you
Walk light. Don’t carry the baggage of any unpleasant thought. Don’t think if the other person is a friend or a foe – just bury the hatchet. Don’t hide your feelings under the stupid mask of formalities
Remember we all are similar than we are different
Poem for your reference.

I was angry with my friend;
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow
And I watered it in fears,
Night & morning with my tears:
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles
And it grew both day and night.
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine
And into my garden stole,
When the night had veild the pole;
In the morning glad I see;
My foe outstretched beneath the tree
