Some folks spend their days
sitting on a bench feeding the pigeons.
Don’t knock it.
You don’t know where they’ve been,
what all they’ve done, how many miles
they’ve walked to get to that bench.
But you do know what YOU can do.
Do the best you’re capable of doing;
in the end it’s the only way
you’ll be able to live with yourself.
Learn ambition, but learn compassion, too.
Both important things in this old world.
