Four Simple Rules

The Four simple rules of life
as practiced by this writer.
 (When possible)

Be all you can be,
but be not to others as
 they would have you be.
For you are you, and that‘s
all you have to be!

Life is short, be noble throughout your days.
Be honest with yourself, kind to others
and tolerant of their many ways.
When death comes, all will recognize
your worth.

Be understanding, be kind, be unto others
as you would have them be to you,
But don't compromise your beliefs
in order to please the beliefs of others.

Take heed in the words of others,
 but weigh those words carefully,
If they do not meet your standards
of logic, then beware!

Jackie R. Kays
