Your Challenge


Your challenge is for to be a better person
And to your higher self at least try to be true
Perhaps we do sow the seeds that becomes our karma
And what we receive from life may be our due.

Your money and assets do not say much of you
And though many may look upon you as one great
Material gains does not speak volumes of you
Though many for that your name may celebrate.

Your challenge in life is to be a better person
To be kinder to others and not deal in lies
So blessed are those who have in them compassion
With others less well off they can empathize.

Your challenge in life is to be a better person
That is all of you that karma does require
Though society may not look on you as a high achiever
Or you may not be one of those others admire.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
