Twas by divine revelation I became aware,
That I don't live for me alone;
And possessions are really wonderful blessings,
Not just things I own.
That even my place in this universe,
Is involved in a grander scheme;
It's why everything happens on purpose ,
And nothing is as it seems.
My life is merely a stepping stone,
So others benefit from my gain.
And everything I do while on this Earth,
Is all that will remain.
So now I choose my paths more wisely,
For there are others who count on me;
And even though we may never meet,
I hope I've been all I could be.
