The Measure of a Life


It is how you lived each day,

The grace under pressure,

The words expressed and those you have refused to say,

The actions that matched the intentions.

The decisions made,

The temptations avoided,

The mistakes you have learned from,

The path you have chosen.

The time you used wisely,

The consideration of others,

The constancy of character,

The remaining present when others walked away

Its a really true poem in my opinion. I' sure there are other factors but from a basic human standpoint, if you could perfect this yourde be a rather upstanding person.
