By Benjamin Shapiro
Success is not

The money you make,

Love can’t be counted

By the hearts that you break, 

Debt isn’t what

The world owes you,

Spending can not

Take away blues. 

Success is in

The joy you bring,

The lives you light,

The songs you sing.

Love is what

You give away, 

The hearts you lift,

The souls you sway. 

Debt is what

You owe to all. 

Spend good thoughts

And have a ball.

For when your time

Comes to an end, 

Immortality lies

In the smiles of friends.
