By Life We Abide
By Evette Carter
We are beautiful
When we know the real depth of beauty.
We are rich
When we want what we have and not much else.
We are strong
When we needn't prey on the weaknesses of others.
We are honest
When we face the lies we tell ourselves.
We are wise
To remember the limits of our wisdom.
We are great
When we realise how small we really are.
We are smart
When we overcome that which divides us.
We are friends
When we care for each other, near or far.
We are loving
Only when our love knows no boundaries.
We are kind
When we let our conscience be our guide.
We are selfless
When we equate ourselves to others.
We are truly alive
When by life we abide.
ABIDE BY LIFE
LIVE AND LET LIVE
