Surpass and Survive

By Gerald Cowan

What any person says or does           One may do good without intent --
And what a person gives                     No credit to him then.
Will have a great effect upon              But what he plans to do and does
The world in which he lives.               Should draw the praise of men.
To seek with all-observing eyes         Just make the best of what you have
Determines what one finds.                While You are still alive.    
Things stumbled on by accident        All others you may ten surpass
May not impress the mind.                 And death you will survive.
