I Try

   I try to live my life
       Not being like all the rest
             I try to use a little charm
               That might add a little zest
                  I try to shed love on others
                     So they may know how love feels
                         I try to shower the world in kindness
                             Just to see what it reveals
                                I try to change peoples worlds
                                  From the gloom that they all see
                                         I try to lighten peoples hearts
                                             So their hearts can fly free
                                                  I try to take away the sadness
                                                     That we feel in all our lives
                                                         I try to explain the gift of joy felt
                                                             When your spirit flys
                                                                  I try to show you all of these things
                                                                     But don't do them to impress
                                                                         I try to do all of these things
                                                                            Because I'm not like all the rest

    Dan, it is very good 'to try', especially to try to do the things you've described... but most people are just 'trying'... ;-) Terry (Nice poem)

    I dont think a guy like you has to try too hard Dan, i think it comes naturally to you as a gift from God, embrace it, run with it, and watch the smiles, great job my friend
