Start Anew

 Artist unknown
 I will start anew this morning with a higher, fairer creed;
I will cease to stand complaining of my ruthless neighbor’s greed;
I will cease to sit repining while my duty’s call is clear;
I will waste no moment whining and my heart shall know no fear.
I will look sometimes about me for the things that merit praise:
I will search for hidden beauties that elude the grumbler’s gaze.
I will try to find contentment in the paths that I must tread;
I will cease to have resentment when another moves ahead.
I will not be swayed by envy when my rival’s strength is shown;
I will not deny his merit, but I’ll try to prove my own;
I will try to see the beauty spread before me, rain or shine;
I will cease to preach your duty and be more concerned with mine.
