Measuring Stick

How do we measure a life?

The wealth we attain-

The power we possess-

The IQ of our brain-

By who we impress?

That measure just doesn’t seem true

When we lose all the stuff we accrue.

So how do we measure a life?

The steps that we take-

The words that we write-

The friends that we make-

The wrongs that we fight.

Measure what matters

And count what is true,

Then even though days are too few

You lived to one hundred and two.
