Father on our life’s journey,
We are tested by many things,
We don’t always get what we desire,
Just accept what fate it brings.
We can’t always have fame and fortune,
We can’t always be a star,
We can’t always do the things we like,
We just have to accept who we are.
Accepting the gifts that we have,
Using them to help mankind,
Then we shall know we are someone,
For we have helped to open another one’s mind.
There is more to life than the material,
A force so powerful and bright,
It transformed a nobody,
In to someone with spiritual light.
It’s not wrong to set your sights high,
So long as you remember to do,
The things you do for others,
Would be the things you would do for you.
Malcolm G Bradshaw
