Poetry Saturday—While Others Are

William Arthur WardBelieve while others are doubting.
Plan while others are playing.
Study while others are sleeping.
Decide while others are delaying.
Prepare while others are daydreaming.
Begin while others are procrastinating.
Work while others are wishing.
Save while others are wasting.
Listen while others are talking.
Smile while others are frowning.
Commend while others are criticizing.
Persist while others are quitting. William Arthur Ward

Poetry Saturday―I Will Do More

William Arthur WardI will do more than belong―I will participate.
I will do more than care―I will help.
I will do more than believe―I will practice.
I will do more than be fair―I will be kind.
I will do more than forgive―I will forget.
I will do more than dream―I will work.
I will do more than teach―I will inspire.
I will do more than earn―I will enrich.
I will do more than give―I will serve.
I will do more than live―I will grow.
I will do more than suffer―I will triumph. ―William Arthur Ward
