Surely pursuit
Of earthly goals
Cannot be the impelling
Of men
Who seek to do
The Fatherís will.

Surely there is
Some deeper,
Godly aim
That sculptors the soul
And fashions the nerve

Then patience,
Gentleness,
Meekness and love
Will Sparkle
Through the countenance -
Mirror of the soul.

When hardship comes
To make its dent,
It merely helps
To carve the shape
Of something
More lasting
Than flesh;

So that the real man
May reflect
Like a diamond
Held up in light

The beauty that will come
Through pressured time,
Is a buried reality
Mined from the spirit,
Brought to the flesh

Displayed before
Hungry,
Human eyes
That long to see
Something
Of Eternity
Unveiled
In their humanity.

Let me then
Spend my days
Not in the ragged
Rat-race
That leaves
A trillion men
Double-aged,
Feeble -souled
De-spirited,
Materialistic simpletons,
Who perish for the thing
Abandoning the person,

But let me
With God, my King
Work out
A sensible way
That causes me
To be
A gem
Mined
From the world of Time,
Held up to Eternity
By a God
Who made them both,
And is Lord
Of every step I take
