Role of Life

Rôle of Life.

The whole world is set before you,
Moving hands wait to applaud you.
Why do you stand aside?
Don't bury yourself inside.

You were made as a whole,
Put on this world to play your rôle.
So why is it that you have to hide your face?
Keep putting yourself down, as if in disgrace?

Lift your eyes up, look straight ahead,
Do this now before your soul is dead!
Strengthen your heart, strengthen yourself,
Why wrap yourself up and stand on the shelf?

A person's wealth should not be measured,
With FIGURE$ as a sign,
But from the honesty of heart,
And their actions in time.

Do not think yourself,
Worse than the rest,
As it is caring for others,
Which is life's test.
