Walk The Path Of Giants

by Patrick Liew on January 20, 2015

As much as the swirls and twirls of DNA
Create the who in you and me,
We are molded along the way
By other matters of vast significance.

Who cradled, who taught, who disciplined
The little boys and girls we once were;
Whether we did well or whether we sinned
Was according to what they said.

As we grew, the friends we chose,
What we did and didn’t do with them,
Played as much a role, we must suppose,
Such is the power of influence.

The past is the creator of the future,
And a man is part creator of himself;
Personal choice, nature and nurture.
How then to make the most for the best?

What you cannot change, learn to bear;
Adopt attitudes that promote well-being;
Choose well, exercise your freedom with care;
Surround yourself with the right influences.

Learn from mistakes, practice humility;
Be virtuous:  forgive, be humble, be kind;
Keep your soul and spirit contaminant-free:
Avoid energy vampires – people who poison .

Find a good mentor and learn willingly;
Build your resource of spiritual giants
To teach you, and coach you to greatness;
Become a giant yourself, the best you can be!

– Patrick Liew and an anonymous poet
