MEASURE OF A MAN


It matters not from whence one came
or what one has of earthly gain
What matters more is who we are
and how we play life's arduous game

For all the money in the world
does not impress this winsome girl
It's in the spirit wealth is found
and in the way your love's unfurled

Don't measure success by the amount
of funds you have in your bank account
Find it instead in the character built
upon the struggles that you surmount

Many who strive for treasures on Earth
know not the meaning of true mirth
that comes from being loved for self
and miss out on that sense of worth

So cherish who you've come to be
through honest work and integrity
Let go of self comparisons
and learn to see what others see!

A man of honest means…the true measure of success.
