Conditions of Life

You’ve got to laugh to keep from crying
Live to keep from dying
Walk to keep from crawling
Stand to keep from falling

You’ve got to be strong to keep from swaying
Leave to keep from staying
You need to watch to change direction
and strive to reach perfection

You’ve got to achieve to keep from losing
And Think to avoid confusion
You’ve got to Pray to keep from sinning
And keep moving when your winning

You’ve got to see so not to be blind
and Respect the men of mankind
You’ve got to be cautious as you read man
But alter not from the plan

You’ve got to forgive to be forgiven
and remember why your living
You must be willing to let all things go
for These are the conditions of a good soul

    So very true this was. Also, something I have never really thought about.
