From My Book "My Soul is not for Sale!"


If you can move a person with your words

make a person think and listen to what you say

If you can help one person across the street

give a dollar to a complete stranger if they need it

Take time out to give someone some advice

stand up for what is right

without worries of what may happen next

Can make a difference in someone’s life

by touch, by a wink of an eye

or just your mere presence

The day you die everyone talks about the good you have done

and what you meant to each person,

That is success, because you have made a difference in this world.

Copyright Vaughn T. Aiken, 2005

I love this poem. Success is not measured by what you have, but what you are doing, living, dreaming, and have overcome.

Loved the sentiments(sp?) in this poem. I wish more people viewed success this way, instead of just by how much money you make. Great writing.
