A Man May Live....
A man may live...to reap the praise
For thoughts and deeds...of OTHER days;
Or 'bask' within his with'ring shade,
Reflecting on...mistakes he's made.
What e'er the content of the scenes,
Regardless...how the 'voting leans'...
The man that faces...all...the same
Has mattered much...in his life's 'game.'
To view success...and failure, too,
As simply...something...man must do;
To be unchanged...when kings he meets,
Nor crushed in spirit...with defeat.
As life shall pass...portray the Way
With rapt attention...to EACH day....
Recalling errors....or the good
Ask, "Have I done the BEST I could?"
