Sometimes life seems like rough a road
And successes are so very few
But sometimes were guilty of looking a head
We take our eyes off the present view

We can’t see the future that awaits us
But we can hold on what we have now
And once we learn to appreciate that
The future will find its way to us some how

I don’t have a masters or collage degree
In fact I never been to school since age seven
But I educate my self with everyday life
Like respect, sharing, honestly and giving

And knowledge that I have come to possess
It helps me in my poems and story telling
And I know I make a lot of mistakes
For I was never good when comes to spelling

It don’t matter the level of our educations
It’s the kindness and respect that will follow you
Every one of us possesses great powers
To help others dreams come true

A little act of caring shown to the needy
Can pave a road that leads to prosperity
And if our kindness can change their lives
Isn’t that using our knowledge to help humanity?

And while we all hope for a future so bright
It will not be wise to let the present slip away
For we will never find that dream tomorrow
If we don’t wake our self’s today

I have never ask for much out of this life
But one day god sends the girl I dream of
And she became my present, and my future
My wife, the mother of our child, the keeper of my love

And I remember me father saying to me
God sees all, and will reward us for what we do
And if he was here today, he would have been so
Proud of having a daughter in law like you

There’s so many dreams floating around us
For every one dance to a different music
So don’t look to a future that you can’t see
Because by doing that you might have just miss it

The word respect means the most to me
It’s the most powerful word of them all
For if we don’t have respect with us
Then we don’t have any knowledge all
