The Links of Life
Nobility is not measured by the vast amount of gold one has.
For through heaven's gates, gold will not permit one to pass.
The kingdom of Angels cares not for this earth's attractions.
For nobility is measured by a man's honesty and actions.
Humility can be measured by the penitence of a woman or man.
For understanding that the power of being meek is a sound plan.
To care for a neighbor as much as one's self is truly rare.
For there are no perfect men, only perfect intentions there.
Tranquility and peace are what one seeks through this short lifetime.
Harsh words ring forever; caring words thwart anger on a dime.
Forgiveness and faith are essential in any advancement in any direction.
And a thought written on paper is the birth of an idea's solidification.
Humanity is the reason for thy birth, a drop in this vast ocean of life,
To help complete the flow back to its origin and the end of stress and strife.
Always retain the feelings of a pleasant tropical summer day from within,
You will find that a good attitude and a smile are where a friendship will begin.
