All In The Heart


The value of this life on
earth... Depends upon the scales... Of whether
one succeeds at last... Or ultimately fails...
Not by the weight of money or... a single ounce
of fame... Or such seclusion as would seem... A
freedom from all blame... But by the comfort of a
word... The kindness of a deed... And by the
boundless charity... To somebody in need... The
sacrifice of time and toil ... To help the world
survive... And keep ambition, faith and hope...
And fortitude alive... And so as there is victory
... Or every effort fails ... The answer is the
human heart... And how it tips the scales.
