“Which One Are You?”

“Which One Are You?”

By Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox

There are just two kinds of people on earth today,
Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.
Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth
You must first know the state of his conscience and health.
Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s little span,
Who puts on airs is not counted a man.
Not the happy and sad, for the swift counting years
Bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.
No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean
Are the people who lift and the people who lean.
Wherever you go you will find the world’s masses
Are always divided in just these two classes.
And oddly enough you will find, too, I mean,
There’s only one lifter to twenty who lean.
In which class are you?
Are you easing the load
Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?

Each of us has been given an incredible divine inheritance. All we need to do is to wake up and stop dying a little every day so we may master our own lives.

Bow Where You Are

At ten years old, I was picked up by my grandfather Johnny Temple Hayes to go to church one fine Sunday morning. I was so excited to spend time with him but also anxious. He was always angry when my parents weren’t going to church, and he did not like having to come and get…

Longings, Dreams and Possibilities

Longings, Dreams and Possibilities

Since life does not go backward, we wake up and get in touch with the possibilities of how we can begin to honor who we really are right now. We pull out the list in our shielded and protected heart and allow the memories to resurface of the individuals we longed to be when we…
