Man's Greatness

Examining love from all different angles, one can come to appreciate the connection
how it is so often used as the vehicle, by which we share with others our deepest 
and this love no matter how much we have, never do we seem able to get enough 
yet had we been forced to live without it, we would find living in starvation just too 

This constant need to possess a measure of love in our life, must be part of that 
divine plan
enabling us to maintain our emotional health, and affording us a way to become a 
better man
perhaps an additional reason might also be, to share a little of our love with those 
in need
we can become so lost in our materialistic world, easily forgetting to pursue this 
noble deed

The greatness of man’s creation exists from within, and lies dormant for us to find
accepting the fact that we are spiritual beings, and the most unique of our kind
innate potential to reach the highest of heights, in the service of our Creator
choosing wisely to do good, while rejecting evil, and thus becoming even greater 

Fooling yourself with alluring transitory pleasures, this world leads you astray
fleeting momentary happiness, causes you to believe you are here to stay
furthest from the truth you could never be, because ultimately all will see
when the end of that long road arrives, you too, will be just another deportee

Only with constant toil and unremitting effort, could we think it possible to overcome
to successfully subdue evil that is now a part of you, would be nothing short of 
better to consider the end, when your immortal soul will be in need of an abode of 
its own 
what a tremendous loss it would be indeed, for your soul to be left in the dark and 
all alone
