Above All Things

No matter what your stature in life is, whether you are rich, or you are poor,

There's only one thing that matters most of all, and of this, you can be sure.

If you have lived each day of your life, and met every challenge, at your best,

Yours has been a life well lived my friend, and of this you have been blessed.

There's value in our being successful, but more, our own feelings of self worth,

The struggle in life of both great and small, for everyone, it begins at our birth.

Tomorrow may bring to us new goals, that surpass our most marvelous dreams,

Each in turn must give it their best, and try, despite how impossible, it all seems.

The verdict of a Judge and jury, in our acts, all will pale, at their best to compare,

In living the good and the righteous way, and in our showing others that we care.

Decisions that we make while on this earth, for our children's futures, to be shared,

The history written then, by all of us, can show the world, that no effort was spared.
