The Common Man

Updated on September 19, 2013

Is Really An Extraordinary Man

He is one that can put all things on hold

He has learned how to deal with every problem known to man

Taking on challenges and coming up short

Day in and day out

Giving his life for all it's worth

Helping others to find their way

Realizing all people aren't that different

As much as we want to believe

Each person needs to eat and sleep

We all have a time to live and a time to die

In life we can become many things

What really counts is what is deep within

There are any number of problems that will resurface

The one who has it all figured out

Is a man who works hard and has no time to worry

One day we will look back

Looking at our life we have lived

Seeing all that we have could of easily been given

So for those who never reach the spotlight

The light is shining on you

Because you make the world

A place I look forward to

      Agreed we each are special in our own way. We must do what we can to make our lives shine bright.
