The Measure of a Man
by Sandra Martyres
Bookmark and Share
 

The measure of a man  - my son
Is not the length of his life span,
Nor his career successes.

The measure of a man  - my son
Is not just the quantum of fun,
Or the size of his friends circle.

The measure of a man  - my son
Is not winning the marathon
But rather running with focus

The measure of a man - my son
Depends on the difference, he makes
To the lives of his fellowmen.

The measure of a man - my son
Is his equation with the Lord,
The living example he sets.

As you walk out of here - my son
Take this little message with you
You will understand the measure
