It is a Matter of Degrees

It is a Matter of Degrees

This living, this road we are all on

Is it not a matter of degrees

Truth is obvious

The soul connects with it

No matter what your story

Why do some face the challenge of a Braveheart

And others the challenge is to submit

Upon inspection either can look appealing,

particularly to each other

Is it not a matter of degrees

This walk we are asked to take.

Is not the wisdom

to learn to walk

the degree you were given

even if it means it may cost everything or appear so

At least all that you wished never to give up.

A matter of degrees to

Stand to your calling.
