Family spirit

by Cogitator

There was a time of much regret
As I reviewed my past mistakes
But then I saw the huge asset
Of living life for others' sakes

We always do things on purpose
The question is: What may that be?
For those who know, it is service
Giving ourselves will set us free

We must include love of others
Respect their state -- treat with kindness
Give compassion as with brothers
We musn't let judgment blind us

Motivation comes from within
Until we choose to learn and grow
We'll never know what could have been
Unless we let our spirit flow

Just a thought
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
