WORDS TO LIVE BY / Poem by Timothy Payton

Poem by Timothy Payton

 

WORDS TO LIVE BY

Your be tested before your blessings,
Must hit hard times for true lessons,
Open eyes will realize real lies,
Open minds will comprehend and divide;

To be a true leader, you must stand alone,
Yet be compassionate for those lost and roam,
You must stand for something or fall for anything,
Be careful of your reign and the responsibility it brings;

Not everyone will share in your joy,
Some will try to manipulate and play like a toy,
love with your heart, show with your actions,
life is truly beautiful, take in the captions.
