Some Life Lessons

Life will break you, if you let it.
If you apply the brakes it can’t.
So, rise and meet the challenge,
Or be crushed like an ant.

We were born of our parents,
But we’re borne by our own will.
For man is born unto trouble,
Which lurks within him still.

Learn to embrace life’s good;
Such tends to bring fortune.
And except the ills of life,
Which tends unto misfortune.

Never, ever, desert kindness,
For it is the dessert of life.
Be led by your own heart,
Let the gray lead tell it twice.

May we all together be laborers
That we might altogether give,
Our conscience bearing witness
As consciously we live.
