A Life worth Living
Is a Life that is Real
That seeks for Truth
That shrinks not from coming to Grips with Itself
Making Journey ever to come into greater Awareness

A Life worth Living
Is a Life that faces confrontation
That rises to the occasion
That flees not from apparent danger
That what ere betides, advances yet

A Life worth Living
Knows that it takes both
The Heat of the Summer's Sun as well as
The Thunder of Lighting to make
For the Roses that doth bloom

A Life worth Living
Realizing it may be the snap of a coiled bullswhip
That is as that, "rod and staff they comfort me."
And in the midst of the valley that shadows death
If it be that hell is to be gone through...
Finding a comfort in the core of the fire
