The happiest of men are those who are,
continually raising the bar.
For why be content with the progress you’ve made,
in a morning or afternoon sit.
Not for glory or praise, or a measly raise,
do these men strive for their best.
But rather for self, and family and more,
in order to better themselves.
They accomplish a lot, and see the progress,
all the while keeping it real.
For despite the success in a competitive world,
They set their eyes on the most precious pearl.
Which is time spent, with a family in need,
of loving and caring and joy.
Thus the bar that needs raising, the push for success,
not only is felt at work.
But may we feel the need, of a willing knee,
ready to sit a child, while we attend to every need.
