We have no choice on when we're born|
and first feel life's gorgeous glow.
We have but very little choice
of life's final afterglow.
Between those few short years on earth,
daily demons make their show.
Losing to them is not the way,
not the way that winners go.
Success in life is measured by
many friends you may acquire.
Material things have little worth,
success is if you inspire.
Seek contentment and peace of mind,
as you labor, day by day.
Try writing if you are depressed,
it will lighten up your way.
