When you see the water in the glass,
Do you see it as half full or half empty?
When difficulty beckons,
Do you wail and cry;
And do nothing?
Or observe and learn,
And explore opportunities?
When you receive unexpected cash,
Do you lavish and oppress?
Or meditate and empower?
When you find yourself in a position of responsibility,
Do you abuse and misuse?
Or leave positive legacies?
When you are privileged with education and knowledge;
Do you use it selfishly or collectively?
When you are dead and gone,
Will you expect prayers or curses?
WHEN YOU ARE DEAD AND NO MORE,
WILL ALL THAT YOU ACQUIRED
STILL HAVE THE POWER?
