Perspective



" Indispensable Man"

by Saxon White



Sometime when you're feeling important;
Sometime when your ego's in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You're the best qualified in the room,

Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;
Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that's remaining
Is a measure of how you'll be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you'll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There's no indispensable man.

" I Don't Regret a Mile" 
by Howard Goodman


I've dreamed many a dream that's never come true,
I've seen them vanished at dawn,
But enough of my dreams have come true
To make me keep dreaming on

I've prayed many a prayer that seemed no answer would come,
Though I'd waited so patient and long;
But enough answers have come to my prayers
To make me keep praying on

I've sown many a seed that's fallen by the wayside,
For the birds to feed upon
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on

I've trusted many a friend that's failed me
And left me to weep alone
But enough of my friends have been true-blue
Enough to keep me trusting on

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain.
And gone many a day without song
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on
