A Poem- Learning And Growing by portable86(f): 10:26am On Jul 11, 2015
Take your time to read and meditate on!

"If you can start the day without caffeine;'
" If you can get going without pep pills;
"If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;
"If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles;
"If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it;
"If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;
"If you can forgive a friend's lack of consideration;
"If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you, when through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;
"If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;
"If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him;
"If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend;
"If you can face the world without lies and deceit; if you can conquer tension without medical help;
"If you can relax without liquor; if you can sleep without the aid of drugs;
"If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or colour,religion or politics;
Then, my friend, you're almost as good as your dog.' almost, but not quite!
