THE MEASURE OF A MAN

Yesterday, I did a post for the women. Today, I submit one for the men…

THE MEASURE OF A MAN

Author: Anonymous

Not – How did he die? But – How did he live?

Not – What did he gain? But – What did he give?

These are the things that measure the worth

Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

Not – What was his station? But – had he a heart?

And – How did he play his God-given part?

Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer?

To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not – What was his church? Not – What was his creed?

But – Had he befriended those really in need?

Not – What did the sketch in the newspaper say?

But – How many were sorry when he passed away?

These are the things that measure the worth

Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.

How do you measure yourself?

I hope that you find a true smile for yourself when you look into the mirror.
