Our Own Best Efforts

Updated on December 2, 2014

Our Own Best Efforts

At times despite our own designs
And during the hurried and wildest times
We forget that others cannot do
Only what we want them to

So we seek for methods right
To preserve our dreams delight
Finding that we cannot do
Things alone most always true

Wishing success on the part of all
So we share the steps without withdrawel
We push each other to our own limits
Sometimes feeling like we overdo it

And those we push and help along
Have their own beat, their own song
As we watch their progress surpass
Our own we see we've helped at last

But sometimes forget about ourselves
So our own efforts sit on the shelves
And await the day when we'll start living
The advice we've shared, advice we've given

We all survive on our own free will
And we help others as we stand still
Needing to follow our own path true
Forgetting how our lives must do

Our own best efforts we give to others
Needing to feel of help no less
Our own best efforts must be ours also
Sharing with ourselves success
