Measure of Man

to kiss and not be kissed
to love and not be loved
to give and not to get
to live and not regret

to forgive and not be forgiven
to save and not be saved
to extend and not be extended to
to woo and not be woo’d

the great measure of a man
when things do not fall to plan
do our principles change with the variety of colors?
or do we stay the same no matter what’s done by others?
