The Truest Measure



The truest measure
of Man's character ...

is reflected in the scale,

of what it takes to upset him.


With this in mind ...


Many who would pose as Great,

are revealed as Minuscule.


Whereas ...


Many, who the World would dismiss

as Insignificant ...

become known as Monumental.

This is something that I have been aware of for many years ... but frustrated in my attempts to articulate. I awoke this morning (after several days of reflection on the thought [Yes! this is what I invest myself in ... smile]) with this encapsulation present.

It was with some degree of satisfaction that I offered it here. I do hope that in the brevity of words some helpful imagery will provide a useful tool for those who are comfortable with it.

I thank you, Dear Bernie, for your encouragement and very kind 'Hugs.'

Lovingly ...
