The Ways Of Life

My grandson started school today

A milestone on the road

He will learn so many things I know

So many skills upload

And more than that he’ll make new friends

And see what others do

And learn to play his part in life

And how not to jump the queue


A farmer and the labourers

A story Jesus told

Paints us a vivid picture

Of life’s unequal loads

Some folk get the early start

Some folk they come late

Some folk get security

Others have to wait


But it doesn’t matter in the end

The Lord treats all the same

He treats us all with justice

And mercy is in the game

Do not complain at others’ luck

Or seek to better them

Be grateful for the life you have

And share your joy with them
