Don't underestimate your worth by comparing it with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special
How do you explain
Death to a child
Or progress to the wild
Or hatred to the mild?

Or the coming of fear
Or the end of a year?
Where does one go
To find yesterday's dawn
Or life's little pawn
Or heaven's front lawn?
How can one see
The cost of what's free
Or the dance of a bee
Or the thoughts of the sea?
How can we take for granted
That which we don't understand?
For like water dropped on the sand
It may well soon be gone.
Go placidly amid the noise and hate,
