Heart of Gold

The beauty of life, which is often unseen
I guess each of us has some sort dream

Intertwined with our ambitions and hope
Sometimes it seems so impossible to cope

Some days are blessed others are cursed 
Life; unlike a play, we don’t get to rehearse

With diligent effort we rise up to the top
Refusing to slow down let-a-long stop

Top of the mountain offers a beautiful view
A place to reflect on how dreams come true

I’ve thought it all over and I believe it is true
My dreams are mine and yours belong to you

We have our own path with rivers to cross
We cherish the gain and we regret the loss

Each one of us has our tools, which we use
The right to decide how we walk in our shoes

There will always be those who criticize and judge
Always be someone who holds some sort of grudge

Misery Loves Company is the saying they tell
No one wants to lonely especially sitting in hell

Its best not to believe in good and bad luck
Accept responsibility and not pass the buck

Reach the point where there’s nothing left to hide
That’s when you find yourself beaming with pride

I never look at another to judge my own wealth
I never judge another as hard as I judge myself

Life is a journey, which has a beginning and end
Each life has its own special meaning to send

If I die today, the story I hope my life has told
I measured my success through my heart of gold

    Michael, first let me say how much I miss you, I truly hope your life is blessed, and for some reason God, brought me to this poem today to read, because it is the message I needed to hear, love Constance

    After the goldrush,it's lunatic push, Streaming along the shallow river banks; After rapids've died to whisp'ring shush, The failed promise of fortune thins the ranks; Truth's weight is set against clumps of crude gold, There's the measure of one's heart,once all's told.

    The poem has so much heart sharing. This poem could give someone the will to move on, with each and every caring word. Please pardon me. but the line "No one wants to lonely especially sitting in hell" I think isn't right. If i am wrong so sorry!
