Matters of the world concern our days,
Success and failure lie in the balance.
People’s words and peoples ways
Jolt the mind and affect our stance.

A mans education, skills and gifts
Are measured to establish worth.
Wealth and size are all that fills
The standards here on this earth.

Yet more than any of these things
And any fancies that we've wooed,
The trait that ensures a soul sings
Is the adoption of correct attitude.

Half of our lives are formed by events
Where we are but a visiting guest.
But where the tide of fate relents
Our attitude shapes the rest.
